Hoffman, Nash Campaign for Congress at Sun City

Sun City continues to be a popular stop on the campaign trail in the race for Congress for South Carolina District One.

The Sun City Republicans hosted Jonathan Hoffman Thursday afternoon. 

Hoffman is a professor at The Citadel and served as Director of International Programs and Border Security Policy for President George W. Bush. 

He says he is running with a mission to help fix a problem hurting everyone.

 

"I think the number one, two and three issues are all the economy," Hoffman said.  "I think President Obama has lost his way on that and focusing on other issues when he should get the economy back going and that's fundamental tax reform. We need to lower the rates, broaden the base. We need to get rid of all the loopholes we can."

 

Another candidate for Congress, former Dorchester County Sheriff Ray Nash, also spoke to the Sun City Republicans today.

 

"I want to take that same attitude of standing up against criminals, standing up against bullies, preserving protecting and defending the constitution," Nash said.  "And interposing myself between the citizens we're sworn to protect and any type of bully whether it be a criminal or any type of overly intrusive government."

 

The primaries are March 19th.  District One covers five counties, including parts of Beaufort County.
