Best “Will He or Won’t He?”

Leon Stavrinakis

Staff Pick

S.C. Rep. Leon Stavrinakis has been said to be the candidate waiting in the wings for nearly every available Democratic seat, from mayor of Charleston to U.S. Congress to the state Senate. A native Charlestonian and College of Charleston graduate, Stavrinakis looks to be waiting for the right time to make his next move after opting to run for re-election in 2012. His sprawling state House district covers parts of West Ashley, Johns Island, and James Island. Whether @leonstav (as he’s known on Twitter) mounts a challenge to the presumptive Democratic candidate for governor, state Sen. Vincent Sheheen, or sets his sights on another office soon to be up for grabs (maybe at the corner of Meeting and Broad streets), we’re counting on seeing Leon in a top-of-the-ballot race at some point in the next few years.
