DescriptionOne more cook is jumping into the stew that is the South Carolina Senate race.

Nathalie Dupree, a prominent Charleston chef and cookbook author, is announcing her write-in candidacy Thursday in an 11th-hour challenge to Senator Jim DeMint, the Republican incumbent, and Alvin Greene, the unemployed Democratic nominee.

The last United States senator to be elected through a write-in campaign was Strom Thurmond, also from South Carolina, in 1954. Ms. Dupree hopes to follow in his footsteps.

She is assembling a campaign team and said she expected to spend $60,000 to $100,000, including for advertising. She is in the market right now for a goose, though they are out of season, because she wants one for a new commercial.
