Sheheen’s Statement on Democratic Primary
Camden, SC – State Senator and Democratic candidate for governor Vincent Sheheen today issued the following statement regarding the Democratic primary for governor:Which candidate can return trust to the governor’s office? That is the ultimate question that South Carolina voters must decide.
“In the South Carolina Senate, I have focused on fighting the special interests and insider politics that too often control our government in Columbia at the expense of the people. Whether it be predatory lenders, big tobacco companies, or environmental polluters, I have been willing to stand up to them — and stand up FOR hard-working South Carolinians and our families.
Next year, we have the opportunity to end business as usual and elect a new governor who will put the people of this state first. South Carolinians deserve a state government that will reward their faith and hard work with good jobs and strong public schools.
Democrats in South Carolina must make a statement about the values of our party and of our state. The future of the Democratic Party and the quality of our state government in South Carolina is at stake.
In this election, Democrats must carefully choose a candidate who represents our values and the values of South Carolina. We must make a new start, with a new direction and vision to rebuild our state. This is our chance and we cannot afford to miss it.”
I told you this was going to be interesting, and it already is.
