King ran for the U.S. House representing the 1st Congressional District of South Carolina. The election was held to replace Tim Scott, who was appointed to fill Jim DeMint's vacant seat in the U.S. Senate.[3] King was defeated in the Republican primary against Keith Blandford, Curtis Bostic, Ric Bryant, Larry Grooms, Jonathan Hoffman, John Kuhn, Tim Larkin, Chip Limehouse, Peter McCoy, Elizabeth Moffly, Ray Nash, Andy Patrick, Shawn Pinkston, Mark Sanford and Teddy Turner on March 19, 2013.[2][1][4]

Former Governor Mark Sanford was considered the front runner due to name recognition and the fact that he had $120,000 in an old campaign account. That coupled with his ability to fundraise quickly gave him a leg up on the field. It was also his former seat in the U.S. House of Representatives that he held for three terms, prior to being elected governor.[5]

The district leans Republican.[6] The last Democratic candidate elected was Mendel Jackson Davis in 1978.[7]
