Daniel Island, South Carolina – November 20, 2017 – Conservative business woman and top vote getter in the GOP Special Election for House District 99 announced today she has been endorsed by former candidate for the same seat, Shawn Pinkston.
“I have tremendous respect for Shawn and the issues he championed during his campaign for State House District 99. Like me, Shawn recognizes the need for elected officials to be transparent, not only in their personal lives but by the way they conduct their businesses as well. All of the candidates have spent time together at various campaign forums and Shawn has listened carefully to the issues from each of us and how we would solve many of the problems facing our communities. Shawn is driven to serve and works hard to improve our community. I am honored to receive his generous support and his vote.”
“Last Tuesday, the residents of House District 99 went to the polls to elect a new state representative. There were four of us in the race and one person – Nancy Mace – came within a handful of votes of winning the election outright. After careful consideration, I will support Nancy Mace in the run-off to be our next state representative,” said Pinkston.
He added, “Nancy worked hard to earn the votes cast in her favor. I believe she will continue to work hard to deliver on her promises to improve our infrastructure, to deal with the nuclear plant fiasco, to lower our taxes, and to bring needed accountability to Columbia. Following the election, Nancy thoughtfully listened to my ideas and asked serious questions about how we can work together to improve our community. She will continue to reach out to community leaders in a collaborative approach to governing.
“As I continue to travel the district and listen to the issues that are important to families and small business owners, my focus remains the same. If elected, I will work hard to improve our roads, support a merit-based process on infrastructure spending, not politics as usual, and I will fight to reduce spending while lowering taxes,” Mace added.
