GOVERNOR HENRY MCMASTER MIMICS TRUMP’S INACTION ON COVID-19
SC Republicans have proven they are willing to follow Trump off a political cliff while workers and small business owners suffer
COLUMBIA, SC— As the communities of Greenville and Spartanburg experience record breaking COVID-19 cases, over 5,000 citizens in this State have died on Governor Henry McMaster’s watch, with no plan in clear view for how South Carolina will end the coronavirus.
South Carolina Republicans continue to be in lockstep with Donald Trump whose negligence toward the virus has exacerbated the effects of COVID-19 on the lives of voters instead of ending them. Members of the SC GOP are still blocking extended pay benefits in Washington and back home, refusing to provide educators and families with clear guidelines for safely resuming in person learning.
“Not a single soul in Henry McMaster’s administration can tell the people of South Carolina when this virus will be gone, because they aren’t actually working to eradicate it. ” said Trav Robertson, Jr. SCDP Chair. “South Carolina is home to some of the top medical institutions in the nation. Our small businesses excel at logistics and infrastructure. Right when we should be unifying as a state to defeat COVID, our Attorney General is attempting to invalidate the election of Joe Biden and our Lt. Governor is lobbying on the Statehouse grounds to restrict women’s access to reproductive care. “
Like Trump, Henry McMaster is doing nothing about the thousands of Americans dying of COVID-19 every day.
