Two weeks ago, on the first day filing opened, I filed to run for re-election to serve our community again in the State House!
Today, with just 30 minutes left until filing closed, an opponent filed to run in the June primary.
I love being in real campaigns and love when everyday people offer themselves up for public service. Unfortunately, many times, last minute filers come at the request from outside interest groups willing to bankroll this person and buy a seat to push agendas our community may not support.
Regardless, I will continue to work hard to earn your support. I never take anything for granted and hope I’ve earned your continued support and trust through the years of serving Chapin, Dutch Fork and Irmo.
We’ve had primary opponents in the past (and won 70%-25%-5% in the 2018 primary and won 84%-16% in the 2016 primary) and you’ve been a part of those overwhelming victories that sent me back to Columbia.
Can I count on you again?
Please let me know if you are willing to display a yard sign (I’ll deliver in May), if you’re willing to contribute funds to the campaign (click here) or if you’re willing to lend your name to the list of our early supporters.
Thanks for always being in my corner!
