South Carolina

6 seats: 4R, 2D     R 55

Democrats' projected performance dropped in every U.S. House district in South Carolina in 1996, but may have rebounded in 1998, given their victories in statewide elections for the U.S. Senate and governor. Still, Democrats have little chance of gaining House seats, and John Spratt remains vulnerable.
