Rep. Andy Patrick Visits Sun City Campaigning For Congress

The candidates vying for the seat to represent the 1st district of South Carolina in Congress are hot on the campaign trail and Thursday state Representative Andy Patrick visited Sun City.

He addressed the crowd and took questions, too, but spent much time talking about the Lowcountry values that won his family over to the area and how he thinks those can win in Washington.

 

"I want to take those values to Washington, D.C. where they fail to balance a budget, they fail to reduce the size of intrusion of government, and I think that we have a deteriorating culture," Patrick said.  "And I think that those values in Washington, D.C. are what are needed for my children's future and the children of the people of the 1st Congressional District."

Rep. Shannon Erickson, R-Beaufort, is hosting forums for the Republican candidates in the 1st Congressional District race at the auditorium of the Technical College of the Lowcountry in Beaufort.

Here are the candidates who are coming up:

Feb. 7: Sheriff Ray Nash, 6 p.m.; Jeffrey King, 7 p.m.

Feb. 11: Councilman Curtis Bostic, 6 p.m.; Sen. John Kuhn, 7 p.m.

Feb. 21: Pinkston, 6 p.m.; Sen. Larry Grooms, 7 p.m.

Feb, 25: Ric Bryant, 6 p.m.; Tim Larkin, 7 p.m.

March 4: Keith Blandford, 6 p.m.; Rep. Peter McCoy, 7 p.m.

March 7: Rep. Andy Patrick, 6 p.m.; Jonathan Hoffman 7 p.m.
