Why I Like Sen. Lee Bright By Rep. Jonathan Hill

It’s really hard to say “no” when everyone else sells their soul for a vote. I know this is hard, because I’ve lived it. And Sen. Lee Bright has lived it much longer than I have. Bright is not a fair weather conservative. Bright does the right thing no matter who is looking.

If the last two years have proved anything, it is that we need conservatives with spine more than ever before. The hypocrisy of Gov. Nikki Haley, who endorsed Bright’s opponent, is breathtaking. But when she set out to take down a battle flag from a historical monument just to get national media attention, Lee Bright said NO. When she compromised with House and Senate leadership to raise the gas tax, Lee Bright said NO. And unlike Gov. Haley, Sen. Lee Bright doesn’t think we should run the economy from Columbia with your tax dollars.

Sen. Lee Bright has been the object of the nastiest name-calling campaign I’ve ever seen, and it’s all about the buck. Big business stands to make a bigger buck when big government is in it’s back pocket. Scott Talley, Gov. Haley, and the “Chamber of Corruption” are all hand-in-glove. That’s why they want to put Bright out.

I could name other examples, but I like Bright because he doesn’t just sit on his butt and vote when it comes time. He does so much more than that: he uses the legislative process to look out for the best interests of the people of South Carolina. The citizens of the 12th Senate District should be proud that they are represented by such an active Senator.

If you are a conservative voter in Senate District 12, it is vital that you go and vote in the runoff election on Tuesday (June 28). The outcome may well be decided by just a handful of votes.

Sen. Bright has your back in Columbia. Do you have his?”
