Listen to the people explaining why they’re for James and Mandy

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Go to #IsupportJamesandMandybecause on Twitter, and listen to the voices:

  • “I have known him for 20 years,” former Joel Lourie says of Rep. James Smith, the Democratic nominee for governor of South Carolina. “We served together at the State House, and I can tell you, there’s no one that stands up and fights harder for what he believes in than James Smith.”
  • Then there’s Todd Shaw of Richland County: “I think James Smith is the real deal… He believes in South Carolina… He has served here; he’s served in the state Legislature and fought for ordinary South Carolinians, and he’s fought for his country.”
  • Ginger Crocker of Laurens County, who served in the General Assembly 40 years ago, says this of James and running mate Mandy Powers Norrell: “I know they care about South Carolina. They want to bring South Carolina together and move it forward…. I know what it’s like to work with people on the other side of the aisle, and I know how important that is to make things happen. James and Mandy will make it happen.”

Every one of the 40 days left in this campaign, we’ll show you one or more of these clips of South Carolinians talking about why they support James and Mandy. You can find these video testimonials on Facebook as well.

Listen to the people. And get out and vote for a South Carolina in which we set aside the things that divide us, and embrace a brighter future for us all.
