Yesterday, Conservatives won an important victory in the Republican primary runoff election for Congress in South Carolina's 5th district. SCF-backed Ralph Norman (R-SC) defeated establishment-backed Tommy Pope (R-SC) in a very close race.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce and groups with ties to House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) spent heavily in an attempt to defeat Norman because he said he would join the House Freedom Caucus.
But conservatives fought back and out of 35,000 votes cast, Ralph Norman won the election by 203 votes!!
It's a major victory for our principles and I want to thank our supporters for making it happen. Ralph Norman would not have won this race without your help.
This was truly a team effort and there are many people to thank. Ralph Norman was supported by SCF, the Club for Growth, FreedomWorks, and the House Freedom Fund.
He also earned the support of former Senator Jim DeMint (R-SC), former Governor Nikki Haley (R-SC), U.S. Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX), and U.S. Reps. Mark Meadows (R-NC) and Jim Jordan (R-OH).
JUNE 20TH SPECIAL ELECTION
Now Ralph Norman will face Archie Parnell (D-SC) on June 20th.
Democrats in Washington desperately want to flip a Republican seat in a special election this year and based on what they have done in Georgia and Montana, we can expect millions of dollars to come flooding into Parnell's campaign.
We cannot allow the liberals in Washington to defeat this outstanding conservative who will fight to end the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are destroying our country.
Please make an urgent donation to Ralph Norman's campaign.
SCF will pay all processing expenses and transfer 100% of your contribution directly to Norman's campaign.
Thank you for doing so much to send principled leaders to Washington. The results in South Carolina prove that your efforts are making a big difference.
