Press Release: South Carolina GOP statement on President Obama visiting state

Columbia, S.C. – South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Matt Moore today issued a statement following news that President Barack Obama will visit the state this coming Friday, March 6:

“Middle class families and small businesses continue to suffer under President Obama’s bad policies. If the President wants to do something more productive than push his liberal agenda on our state, South Carolina has some beautiful golf courses. From blocking construction of the Keystone Pipeline to driving up health care costs to attacking South Carolina manufacturers through the NLRB, it’s clear why this President hasn’t visited South Carolina in seven years,” said Chairman Moore.
