Columbia, S.C. – SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly today issued a statement following the South Carolina House’s amendment of the Congressional redistricting bill. The bill is now before the S.C. Senate.
“Redistricting is a challenging process, and I am proud of the many South Carolinians who made their voices heard over the past few months.
“Now we must avoid letting unelected judges draw South Carolina’s Congressional districts. Republicans across South Carolina are hopeful that our fellow Republicans will support the plan as amended by the House – a plan that includes a 7th district in the Pee Dee region. A Pee Dee district has historic precedent and is the best path forward for South Carolina.”
