(from Mike's Campaign website)
The Lowcountry has been home for Mike Covert for more than twenty years.
Mike is the oldest of two brothers growing up in a modest home where work ethic was instilled as the highest priority.
His father was a teacher and a coach, giving Mike the understanding and importance of education and leadership. Through his relationship with his father, he grew to understand the importance that our educators have on our country and it is a passionate subject for Mike as a father and grandfather.
Mike’s mother created the home and taught Mike the lessons of patience and compassion, having a lasting effect on Mike today.
Mike is currently one of six Republican candidates vying for your vote in the First Congressional Race that stretches from down in Beaufort, up to Dorchester and over to Charleston County.
