Governor Jeb Bush Campaigns with Nikki Haley

On their second stop in Lexington, SC, both Haley and Bush addressed supporters on the importance of re-electing conservatives. Haley also tells the crowd how Governor Bush was a support system for her 4 years ago in her first campaign for governor.


Two Major Parties Join to Support Constitutional Amendment

One of the constitutional amendments that will be seen on the November 4th ballot has drawn the support of two unlikely groups. Both the SC Republican Party and SC Democratic Party have formed an alliance, Troops Leading Troops ( , to ask voters to vote “Yes” on Amendment 2.

Amendment 2 would allow the Governor to appoint the Adjutant General of our state, instead of being elected, as it stands currently. South Carolina is the only state in the country that still elects this position, which oversees the National Guard. If this amendment receives approval, it would go into effect in January of 2019.

In a joint statement, SCGOP Chair Matt Moore and SCDP Chair Jamie Harrison said,

“As Chairmen of our respective political parties, we don’t always agree – especially during election season. But Amendment 2 is a great exception. That’s why we’ve teamed up to let South Carolinians know about an important decision on the November 4th ballot. Whether you’re a Republican, Democrat, or independent, we all should agree that politics should not decide the leader of our state National Guard. We must ensure that only a qualified person of the highest caliber can be appointed to lead our brave men and women in uniform.”

The State newspaper reports, not only would this amendment change the way the position is filled, but also some of the requirements.

“The amendment would also include more stringent requirements for an appointed adjutant general, including requirements that the person have high-level military education and experience.”
