"I urge my supporters to spend their time and efforts getting her elected," Rose said. Rose ran for the seat last year, but was defeated by now-Sen. Tim Scott.
Colbert Busch, who is the sister of comedian Stephen Colbert and one of three Democrats in the race, said she welcomed Rose's "insights on issues of importance to our community."
