SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly congratulates Andre Bauer and Tom Rice, says Preston Brittain and Gloria Tinubu “out of touch” with S.C. values
Columbia, S.C. – South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Chad Connelly issued the following statement congratulating Andre Bauer and Tom Rice for making the 7th Congressional District Republican runoff to be held on June 26.
“Andre Bauer and Tom Rice are outstanding candidates and South Carolina would be well served by either in Congress. I also commend the seven other Republicans who sought the 7th Congressional seat. I look forward to working with them to secure a Republican victory in November,” said Chairman Connelly.
“Our Republican principles stand in stark contrast to Democrats Preston Brittain and Gloria Tinubu – two liberals in a big spending, pro-ObamaCare pod. They couldn’t be more out of touch with South Carolina values. Brittain has even said, ‘I wouldn’t say that I see any great failure’ in Barack Obama.
“Preston Brittain and Gloria Tinubu could maybe get elected in Pasadena, California, but they sure can’t get elected in the Pee Dee of South Carolina.”
