Prosser has talent to lead district

While attending a recent debate, several candidates for the new 7th Congressional District seat gave impressive performances. As I listened to each of them speak, I asked myself the question, “Which one of the candidates is articulate enough to make us proud when he faces the intensity of the national mainstream media?” Chad Prosser stood head and shoulders above the other contenders for the Republican nomination. He shared his common sense ideas for moving us forward with intelligence and clarity.

Born and raised in Florence and now a resident and small business owner on the coast, Chad is the only candidate with equally vested interests in both the Pee Dee and Grand Strand regions. His years of serving as director of Parks, Recreation and Tourism have polished him without producing yet another slick politician. There is no way to calculate how many millions of tourism dollars have already come into our state because of his leadership. It simply makes good sense to send a leader

to Washington who has proven his ability to serve effectively.

This is our chance to elect a congressman who will make us proud to be South Carolinians when we see our representative interviewed by hard-hitting reporters on the national news. Chad Prosser is the smart choice for District 7.
