SC Dems Statement on Republican Presidential Candidates Campaigning in South Carolina Today

Aug 07, 2015

Columbia, SC— South Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jaime Harrison issued the following statement on Republican Presidential candidates Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee campaigning in the Palmetto State today.

Last night, after hearing Senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Governor Mike Huckabee, we were left with one conclusion— none of these candidates offered any real solutions for working families. None of these candidates mentioned equal pay or raising the minimum wage, and all would repeal the Affordable Care Act, leaving millions without access to healthcare.

“Senator Rand Paul has even proposed a dangerous tax plan that could raise taxes on middle class families while giving the wealthy a big break and would allow businesses to discriminate against who they serve. Once again Republicans are looking out for wealthy special interests instead of South Carolina’s working families.”
