HUT! TWO, THREE, FOUR …
Stop the presses! The U.S. Senate campaign of Orangeburg, S.C. attorney and Afghan War veteran Bill Connor – one of the GOP candidates challenging incumbent U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.) – has been suspended.
No, Connor isn’t preparing to withdraw from the race over this scandal … he’s preparing to embark on another manly military exercise that his campaign hopes will instill you with a sense of awe and admiration for his selfless love of country.
Because whether you want to or not, you WILL respect his service.
“Beginning Wednesday afternoon, April 23, Bill Connor will be participating in a mandatory military spring certification training out of state,” Connor’s campaign said this week. “To avoid even the perception of campaigning while on military duty, we have decided to suspend all campaign activities through the end of training on Sunday, April 28.”
So in other words, prepare to NOT pay attention to a campaign you already weren’t paying attention to …
To the Connor campaign, the Connor campaign suspension is serious business.
“We will not be available for comment from media, will not be updating social media, making any campaign related phone calls, or participating in any other forms of direct campaigning,” the campaign announced. “We will resume all campaign duties when Bill returns from training on Monday, April 29.”
Oh, the horror.
What will South Carolina do over the next five days with no Bill Connor for U.S. Senate campaign out there to remind us of his heroism and valor?
