SCGOP Chairman Issues Statement on Republican Sweep

Columbia, SC – November 2, 2010 – South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Karen Floyd tonight issued the following statement on the Republican sweep of statewide constitutional offices, and winning the 5th Congressional District:

“Today South Carolina found her voice, and tonight we have a Republican renewal,” Floyd said. “South Carolina elected the most conservative, reform-minded, Republican ticket in history. Never before has the Republican Party held nine Constitutional offices, five House seats, both Senate seats, and such a large majority in the General Assembly. This is a tribute to each and every South Carolinian who understands the potential of our state, and the fact that potential can be realized by holding true to the conservative principles of lower taxes, limited government, and individual liberty. Congratulations to each and every one of our winners tonight, and thanks to every South Carolinian who supported our conservative reform ticket.”
