SC Club for Growth Announces its First Endorsement of 2014
COLUMBIA, SC – Today, the South Carolina Club for Growth PAC announced its endorsement of Pat McKinney for Lt. Governor.
As a longtime resident of South Carolina, Pat has seen how ineffective and inefficient South Carolina’s government can be. After 40 years in business, he has also experienced how government can make it difficult to start a successful small business.
Pat wants to ensure tax dollars are spent responsibly – starting with the lieutenant governors office. He has pledged to eliminate the security detail for the Lt. Governor. This full-time security detail for a part-time official costs taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars each year.
“With one term remaining before the Governor and Lt. Governor run on a joint ticket, it is important we elect a fiscal conservative who brings a common sense approach to government. Pat’s history as a successful and respected businessman plus his volunteer work on boards around the state and nation brings a rare, if not unique, perspective to the Lt. Governor’s office. The South Carolina Club for Growth PAC is proud to give Pat our strong endorsement,” said South Carolina Club for Growth PAC Chairman, Dave Ellison.
South Carolina Club for Growth PAC is a network of fiscal conservatives dedicated to expanding the prosperity of working families through the Reagan doctrine of lower taxes, smaller government and free enterprise. The mission of SC Club for Growth PAC is to support viable pro-growth, fiscally conservative candidates. In the past, our efforts have included mail pieces, television ads, and candidate endorsements in critical races.
