South Carolina enacted more conservative legislation in the last few years than ever before. That’s no coincidence, and my work isn’t finished. I will stay focused on what matters: fixing our roads and bridges, fighting for taxpayers, promoting innovative policies, and ensuring our area’s conservative voice and values are always represented in Columbia.
