In response to Vivek Ramaswamy’s bus tour through South Carolina, South Carolina Democratic Party spokesperson Alyssa Bradley released the following statement:
“Vivek Ramaswamy is cut from the same exact cloth as the rest of the Republican presidential contenders who want to ban abortion, threaten Social Security and Medicare, and fight culture wars instead of fighting for working families. He’s built his brand off of taking Donald Trump’s extreme agenda further and called Ron DeSantis’ legislation to ban abortion before many women know they’re pregnant ‘reasonable.’ Expect to see him take his extremism even further as he campaigns this week.”
Here’s what you need to know about Ramaswamy’s extreme agenda:
- Ramaswamy said he supported Ron DeSantis’ ban on abortion before many women even know they are pregnant and called for other states to implement their own abortion bans.
- He’s made it a centerpiece of his campaign to defund law enforcement including the FBI.
- He’s called to abolish the Department of Education which could eliminate funding for thousands of students in South Carolina’s public schools and colleges.
