Letters to the Editor

Brittain has support behind him to help him win

I’m writing because I enthusiastically support Preston Brittain in the Democratic primary for the new 7th Congressional District. He’s an energetic problem solver who will be able to beat the Republican in the general election.

He’s supported by Congressman James Clyburn, former Congressman John Spratt, former Governor Jim Hodges, State Senator Vincent Sheheen and State Senator John Land, just to name a few. With the creation of a 7th Congressional District, South Carolina Democrats have an opportunity to win a second seat in Congress. Brittain has broad appeal within our new district because of his common-sense approach to job creation and his deep local ties.

Let’s not miss out on this great opportunity.
