The Crew | Romney picks up a Thurmond, more legislators


On the South Carolina wing of his presidential announcment, Romney found a few prominent South Carolinians in the crowd who threw their support behind his candidacy.  Most notably was Paul Thurmond, son of legendary US Senator Strom Thurmond and newly elected Charleston County Councilman.  Like the Campbell family, the Thurmond family seems to be split in their endorsements as Strom Jr. has already backed McCain.

Also backing Romney yesterday was State Senator Bill Mescher and State House members Chip Huggins, Ted Pitts, and Nate Ballentine.  State Representatives Nikki Haley and Alan Clemmons and State Senators Greg Ryberg and Ronnie Cromer, whose endorsements were already known, were also in attendance.
