LAWMAKER’S 2010 OPPONENT URGES “FREE MARKET CONSERVATIVE” TO SEEK SEAT

|| By FITSNEWS || Mande Wilkes – whose opinion columns run in The (Myrtle Beach, S.C.) Sun News and here on FITS – has released a statement in response to the sudden resignation of S.C. representative Nelson Hardwick from the S.C. House of Representatives (news of which was exclusively reported here).

Wilkes ran against Hardwick in 2010 – drawing 45.6 percent of the vote.

“It is with regret that I have learned of S.C. Rep. Nelson Hardwick’s resignation,” Wilkes said.  “I trust that the grievances against him will face whatever scrutiny is proper, and whatever the result of the investigation I trust that a just result will follow.”

Hardwick has been accused of making unwanted romantic advances toward a female staffer at the S.C. House.

“As I have no personal knowledge about the veracity of the claims, I decline to comment on them at this time,” Wilkes added.  “Following the resignation, it is my hope that a committed free-market conservative will step up to serve the people of District 106.”

Will Wilkes be that candidate?

She didn’t say …
