Press Release: SCGOP Chair Connelly congratulates Tom Rice, calls Gloria Tinubu a “radical, left-wing candidate”


Columbia, S.C.- South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Chad Connelly issued the following statement congratulating Tom Rice on his victory in today’s 7th U.S. Congressional District runoff:

“Tom Rice has strong, deep roots in the 7th district and he’ll be an outstanding advocate for the district in Congress. The South Carolina Republican Party will work tirelessly to elect him on November 6. I also want to commend Andre Bauer for running a hard-fought campaign,” said Chairman Connelly.

“No one works harder to support the SCGOP than our five current Republican Congressmen and two U.S. Senators, and I look forward to Tom Rice joining their great team.

“Tom Rice’s general election opponent, Gloria Tinubu, is out of touch with South Carolina values. She is a radical, left-wing candidate with strong ties to the Green Party and the AFL-CIO union bosses. The South Carolina Republican Party will expose her questionable ties and radical record in the coming days.”
