There aren’t a lot of opportunities to elect liberty candidates this year, but the season is starting off with a big opportunity in South Carolina’s first congressional district.
When Tim Scott was appointed to fill Jim DeMint’s Senate seat it launched a special election to fill his place in the House and 18 Republican candidates took up the challenge. There are a lot of great candidates in the field, but after holding several candidate events and polling their membership the Republican Liberty Caucus of South Carolina agreed unanimously that Sheriff Ray Nash is the best qualified, most pro-liberty candidate in the race.
Nash has been a law enforcement professional for thirty-four years, is a strong constitutionalist and a homeschool parent. Most recently he served in Afghanistan as the Criminal Justice Adviser for the U.S. Embassy in Kabul. During his career, Mr. Nash studied to become a Constitutional scholar, gaining knowledge and an unfailing respect for our country’s faith, heritage and founding principles. According to Sheriff Nash, “our nation is facing a number of moral and Constitutional crises, such as rampant fiscal irresponsibility, unbridled government expansion and an ever growing assault on our Constitutional freedoms.” He believes solutions can be found in the principles of Constitutional conservatism and takes seriously his oath to “Preserve, Protect and Defend…” Nash demonstrates a knowledge of the Constitution, respect for limited government, and appreciation for the work of the Republican Liberty Caucus.
Scott Pearson, RLCSC State Chairman observed that “In a field of 16 candidates, we’re blessed with at least a half dozen that would stand out as strong defenders of liberty, including John Kuhn, Mark Sanford, Elizabeth Moffly, Larry Grooms, Jeff King, and Keith Blandford. However, if we are to have an impact, we believe it is important for those who value limited government to come together behind one candidate. That’s why, today, we are endorsing a strong conservative who knows and values the Constitution, Sheriff Ray Nash.”
“In a field of excellent candidates, Ray Nash stands out with the integrity and the dedication to constitutional principles,” said Dave Nalle, RLC National Chairman, “which will make him as great an advocate for the people in Washington as he was a guardian of their rights and safety while in uniform.”
Because this is a special election it’s on an accelerated schedule, so the RLC of SC and RLCUSA PAC are working together to raise some money to boost the campaign with the Send A Sheriff Moneybomb. If you can donate even a few dollars it would make a huge difference in this important race.
