Dear Fellow Republican:
Late last year, I wrote many of you to tell you of my intentions to run for Chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party. Like you, I am committed to working hard to ensure that the conservative values we share are represented in every level of politics throughout South Carolina. I am proud of South Carolina’s red-state heritage, and I want to do everything in my power to continue electing strong, conservative Republicans. The big victories we all shared here in November showed just how important it is to have solid leadership, great candidates and a common-sense message.
Since the first of the year, it has come to my attention that Chairman Katon Dawson is considering again running for chairman of our state party. On Election Night, Governor Mark Sanford said that we have the best State Party Chairman in the nation—and I agree. And since Katon is willing to serve our party and our state for another two years, I want you to know that I was the first in line to sign on to his re-election campaign. With Katon’s leadership and all of our hard work, we will maintain our first-in-the-South presidential preference primary and expand upon our majorities in the General Assembly.
