The Bright for Senate campaign is proud to accept the first official Tea Party group endorsement for any candidate in the upcoming US Senate primary. The upstate Senator has been strongly endorsed by the Kershaw County Patriots, a group “born out of the need to return to the foundations of our great nation,” according to a statement the KCP issued to the Bright Campaign.
A video of their endorsement can be found by clicking here.
“This is why we at the Kershaw County Patriots are endorsing Lee Bright for Senate,” proclaimed the group, adding that “Lee (Bright) has a proven record of no compromise of individual liberty. Senator Bright has been at the forefront of the battle to restore the individual rights of the people.”
“This is a great moment for our campaign” said Bright, who is gaining tremendous traction among Liberty and Tea Party voters. “The Kershaw County Patriots know what this great nation is about, and they know what threatens it. They know that Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi threaten our futures, and they know that Lindsey Graham all too often works with them in these efforts. They get it, and so do I, and that’s why we are going to work together to remove Lindsey Graham from office.”
The Kershaw Patriots also emphasized in their statement that they are “Constitutionalists, not collectivists” and that the “individual rights given to us by our creator are the very foundation of our nation. In fact it is those rights that made this nation the greatest ever in the history of mankind. It is the individual, not the collective, which has made us the envy of the world.” They proudly “stand in opposition to the elite mentality of Lindsey Graham and the progressives in Congress. We are here to stand for liberty, equal justice, individual rights, and freedom from tyranny.”
Senator Bright said that he “expects this to be the first of many Tea Party groups who will join us in our campaign,” adding that “when you look at my record, and my statements, it is easy to see that the Kershaw County Patriots and Lee Bright are on the same page. We are thrilled to get the first official Tea Party endorsement, and look forward to many more.”

All 5 of them?
I hope this group is fronted by either Mike Mattox or Sheri Few. If so, this is the Kershaw County political KISS of death. The press release can be written to read, “Lee Bright will not win the Republican Primary in Kershaw County.”
All eyes turn to the Pee Dee Patriot Tea Party Express Grassroots America Tri-Corn Founders for their critical endorsement. Sources say the current vote, with 100% reporting, is: Bright (4) Mace (2) Graham (1) Matlock (1) “That nice boy at Kroger” (1).
Did they don their white robes for the announcement?
LOL…..we highly wager that we have more “patriots” in this comment section than Kershaw or Wil Folks or Brian Hicks does…!!
We see you smiling Glenn McConnell………you can wipe that Kershaw smile off of your freakin FACE…@!
…..as for you workers in the Nancy Mace administration…..GET BUSY..!!
Already told you – there aren’t any workers. It’s just Mace and the Minivan.
No mention of the KCTP spokesperson. Whomight that be?
I feel like that was intentional. Adding Sheri Few’s name turns it from a “Press Release” to a political joke.
Many great men were involved in the “foundation of this great nation.” You will never convince me that a man as dim-witted as Lee Bright could have possibly come close.
But this bastion of intelligence, the Kershaw Tea Party crowd, disagrees. What a joke. They are too dumb to know that they should be embarrassed.
I support Bright, but why the hell are groups already endorsing candidates?
Dear SC Senator Lee Bright,
We can not believe that you would be quoted saying this…….
“….Senator Bright said that he “expects this to be the first of many Tea Party groups who will join us in our campaign,” adding that “when you look at my record, and my statements, it is easy to see that the Kershaw County Patriots and Lee Bright are on the same page. We are thrilled to get the first official Tea Party endorsement, and look forward to many more.”
Mr. Bright, how does this statement actually throw mud and dirt on all TEA Party members in this state.?
Do you realize that you infer that some Tea Party members will endorse you and that some will endorse Mace or Cash.? What kind of “Party” are you making the Tea Party out to be..?
Rag tag hooligans..?
SC Senator Bright….you need to FIRE your “spokesman” for this type of media “spitballing”…!!!
What if you started labeling your Republican party members or “Democrat” voters the same way..? How would that stunt your campaign funding flow..?
I like that the guy that single-handedly organized and attended this meeting, voted for the Bright endorsement, wrote and distributed this press release, took the time out of his unemployed day to “Unlike” each of our comments. THAT is true commitment!
Budweiser need to do a “Real American Hero” commercial about this guy! You sir, are a true American Hero! Thanks YOU for your service…
Isn’t this the same group that made national news when they advocated shooting cops? I’m sure their endorsement will be very influential in the months ahead.
