In a strong display of conservative unity, former Arkansas Governor and presidential candidate Mike Huckabee has endorsed Tim Scott in his bid for U.S. Congress.
Governor Huckabee issued the following statement:
“Tim Scott deeply believes in what makes America and certainly South Carolina great – faith, family and freedom. Both a fiscal and social conservative, Tim is devoted to the key conservative ideals of: low taxes, reduced spending and less government intrusion.”
“Tim will fight for the traditional conservative family values of marriage between one man and one woman, and for the sanctity of life – from the moment of conception to its natural conclusion. Also, as an advocate for the second amendment, Tim will work hard to preserve our right to keep and bear arms.”
“Tim Scott is a strong supporter of the South Carolina Fair Tax, which will simplify the tax code, giving South Carolina a distinct advantage in enticing new business. Tim Scott will represent the values of South Carolina, and will help put an end to the liberal agenda threatening to cripple our economy – he’s got the consistent conservative credentials to do it.”
Tim responded to the Governor’s endorsement with the following statement:
“Governor Huckabee’s support means a lot to me because we share the same traditional conservative values. I want to end wasteful government spending, cut taxes, and bring jobs to the First District, while fighting to defend the Second Amendment, the sanctity of life and of the family, and other traditional values.”
