BILL STERN TO JOIN GOP FRONTRUNNER’S LEADERSHIP TEAM
National/ “First in the South” GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has received the backing of a major South Carolina powerbroker.
Columbia, S.C. businessman Bill Stern – the former chairman of the S.C. State Ports Authority and a major contributor to numerous Palmetto politicians – will not only endorse Trump, he will reportedly join a regional leadership team aimed at guiding the billionaire real estate mogul’s candidacy well beyond this month’s primary election.
This website has frequently done battle with Stern – among the most well-connected political insiders in South Carolina – but there’s no denying his influence over the state’s leading “Republican” elected and appointed officials.
In other words, this is a big “get” for Trump … to say nothing of an unexpected one (not unlike the recent endorsement he received from S.C. lieutenant governor Henry McMaster).
