Columbia, S.C. – SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly today issued the following statement after Rep. Jim Clyburn was appointed by Rep. Nancy Pelosi to the deficit reduction super committee:

“As Majority Whip under Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi, Jim Clyburn oversaw the biggest two year spending spree in American history.
