CONGRESSMAN HEADED TO SUMTER …
Congressman Jim Clyburn – the third-ranking Democrat in the U.S. House of Representatives – will host a town hall event this week in his hometown of Sumter, S.C.
Clyburn’s gathering will be held on Thursday, June 1 at the Black River Electric Cooperative (1121 N Pike Street W) between 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. EDT.
“This town hall meeting will focus on accessible, affordable quality health care; reforming our tax code; infrastructure development; energy costs; and what we must do in our communities to address these and other challenges facing our country today,” a statement released by the S.C. Democratic Party (SCDP) noted.

Clyburn, 76, has represented the state’s heavily gerrymandered sixth congressional district (map) since 1993 – facing only token “Republican” opposition during his quarter-century in the U.S. Congress.
He was the U.S. House majority whip from 2007-2011, and became assistant minority leader after “Republicans” won the U.S. House in 2010.
As champions of limited government, we’ve found very little in the way of common ideological ground with Clyburn over the years – however we respect his right to participate in the marketplace of ideas (even if he hasn’t always respected ours).
