SCGOP Chairman Chad Connelly issued the following statement on tonight’s 1st Congressional District primary.
“I want to thank and congratulate all sixteen Republicans who sought to serve their state and nation by running to represent the 1st Congressional District. I look forward to working with all of them to secure a Republican victory on May 7. ”
“Our top two candidates, in a 16 person primary, received 10,000 more votes than the Democrats. The numbers don’t lie- Lowcountry voters have rejected Colbert-Busch’s left wing agenda,” said Chairman Connelly.
“The AFL-CIO endorsed Colbert-Busch has proved on issue after issue that her liberal views don’t match that of South Carolina. Elizabeth Colbert-Busch could maybe get elected on the west coast, but not on the coast of South Carolina. “
