Wilson Remembers Milliken

(Columbia, SC) – Congressman Joe Wilson (SC-02) released the following statement in regards to the passing of South Carolina textile icon Roger Milliken:

“Roger Milliken will be remembered as a visionary for the textile industry with his innovations. However, he was also a courageous and ardent supporter of the two party system in South Carolina. His early financial support was instrumental in establishing the state’s Republican Party. Roger was a forward thinker in promoting limited government and conservative principles. In addition, his extraordinary success helped create opportunities for the people of South Carolina. My thoughts and prayers are with the Milliken family in this difficult time.”
