VETERAN STATE SENATOR WILL NOT CHALLENGE MARK SANFORD
S.C. Senator Larry Grooms will not seek the first congressional district seat currently held by former two-term Palmetto State governor Mark Sanford.
The veteran lawmaker – who has represented S.C. Senate District 37 (Berkeley and Charleston counties) for the past nineteen years – finished in third place in the 2013 special election for this district.
As for mounting another congressional bid, Grooms said he’d “done that” and didn’t “ever care to do that again.”
Once a fiscal conservative champion in the State Senate, Grooms has veered wildly to the left in recent years – drawing the ire of tax hike opponents. He’s become the definition of a status quo “Republican,” and we regret ever lending him our endorsement. In fact, we’re hopeful someone will challenge Grooms – and beat him – in his State Senate district.
Sanford – a sellout and national laughing stock – is being challenged this spring by S.C. Rep. Jenny Horne. Former S.C. lieutenant governor André Bauer has reportedly been mulling a bid for the seat as well. Redrawn in advance of the 2012 elections, the first district stretches along the Palmetto State’s Lowcountry coastal regions.
Ummmmm…Kemosabe…let’s see now…in this corner we have Sure-I-Left-My-Wife-And-Four-Sons-Mark Sanford himself
Lied through his RINO teeth about it of course and proved himself to be just ANOTHER libertarian Lilliputian elf
And in this corner we have Jenny-Sure-I’ll-Sell-My-Grandma’s-Jugular-For-An- Office-Horne waxing hypocrite on the flag
Who if the truth be known should go ahead and light up two big batons and find the devil himself and go play…tag
And in this corner we have Andre-Sure-I-Keep-ILLEGAL-Video-Poker-Machines-In-My-Warehouses-Bauer, too
Who like Lexington County’s almost “new” and old sheriffs and Raghead wants to give voters a real good you know…
Finally in this corner we have the First District’s voters
who if corn were an enema would make very good shuckers
Because we KNOW they no doubt elected all of the above or
wanted to and make perpetual all-day dumb-azz suckers !!!
Larry is lucky to have his senate seat and he won’t go farther up the ladder than that. He hits a few of the right notes for the conservatives but mostly he is a shill for Leatherman and his special interest.
Another RINO, Grooms could easily be defeated if a decent conservative ran against him.
He is a self-interested idiot that plays the Christian card and then votes like a RINO. Dump him!
