The 1st Congressional District of South Carolina is a coastal congressional district in South Carolina, represented by Republican Mark Sanford since his election in 2012. The district has historically been based in Charleston. It has included Myrtle Beach, which became a major tourist destination in the late 19th century, as well as other coastal areas that have attracted retirees and seasonal visitors. From 2003 to 2011, the district boundaries extended from Seabrook Island in the south to the North Carolina border and included parts of Charleston, Dorchester, Berkeley and Georgetown counties and all of Horry County to the North Carolina line. In 2010, the state received another seat in Congressional apportionment due to an increase in population. The state's districts had to be redrawn, which was completed in 2011. In the final plan, the 1st congressional district was redrawn in 2011 to reach from Hilton Head to mid-coast South Carolina, ending at the Santee River. Horry County was included in the new 7th congressional district. (More from Freebase)
