Nelson Hardwick not on conservatives’ side

It’s troubling to me that Rep. Nelson Hardwick would go to Columbia supposedly to represent the conservative values of District 106 voters and then support the policies of President Obama.

Incredibly, Rep. Hardwick joined with Democrats to sponsor a bill that would initiate Obamacare in South Carolina.

He also voted for Obama’s stimulus spending and consistently supports higher spending, including a 30 percent increase in the budget just last year.

Rep. Hardwick refused to vote for needed earmark reforms and has one of the worst records in the State House, according to watchdog groups, in voting for wasteful pork barrel projects.

As a small businessman, I can no longer afford the fiscal policies supported by President Obama and liberal politician Nelson Hardwick.

If you intend to vote against Obama this year, then you should also vote against one of his allies, Nelson Hardwick, in the June 12 Republican primary.
