CHARLESTON, S.C. — A U.S. House candidate severely injured in a car crash in South Carolina over the weekend plans to keep running for the seat.

Katie Arrington’s spokesman Michael Mule (mew-LAY) said Monday that Arrington already planned to take some time off around Independence Day after defeating U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford in the Republican primary on June 12.

Arrington’s doctors said at a news conference that she was taken off a ventilator Monday and already shows motivation to recover, just three days after the wreck.

U.S. Sen. Tim Scott says he spoke to Arrington this weekend, and she wrote notes in response.

Scott says Arrington thinks her life was saved so she could give more to public service.

Arrington was a passenger in a car hit head on Friday near Charleston.
