SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly asks if Vincent Sheheen sides with creating jobs or with Barack Obama?

Today, Governor Nikki Haley joined with Governors Bob McDonnell (VA) and Pat McCrory (NC) in sending a letter to Sally Jewell, President Obama’s designee for Interior Secretary, concerning the Obama Administration’s opposition to energy exploration and production in the Outer Continental Shelf of the Atlantic Ocean.

Chairman Chad Connelly said, “Governor Haley’s commitment to creating jobs in South Carolina is second to none. As she works to also make energy more affordable, and protect our state’s natural resources, her liberal opponent-in-waiting has been silent.”

Chairman Connelly continued, “If Vincent Sheheen was Governor, would he join our neighbors in North Carolina and Virginia in supporting job-creating offshore energy production, or would he side with Barack Obama and oppose it?”
