SCGOP Chairman comments on Republican Brown’s victory in Massachusetts

CM Capture 4Columbia, SC – January 19, 2009 – South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Karen Floyd tonight issued the following statement on Republican Scott Brown’s victory in the Massachusetts U.S. Senate race:

“This victory is a sign of great things to come for Republicans, because if the conservative message can win in the bluest of blue states, it can win anywhere,” Floyd said. “On a practical level, it means another vote against government-run healthcare in the U.S. Senate. But what it represents is a growing national chorus pushing back against the president’s agenda of big spending, big government, and big debt. When you combine that national trend with an already conservative electorate here in South Carolina, it means one thing – Democrats are going to be absolutely on the run this year in our state. I join many others in congratulating Senator Brown for this monumental victory.”
