Republican Liberty Caucus of SC Endorses Senator Lee Bright for Re-election

NORTH CHARLESTON, SC – The Republican Liberty Caucus of South Carolina unanimously endorsed Lee Bright as he seeks re-election in South Carolina Senate district 12.

Known as one of the strongest conservative voices in the Senate, Lee Bright was elected to the South Carolina State Legislature in 2008. He diligently serves Spartanburg’s 12th District in the Senate and received the Friend of Taxpayer Award from the Spartanburg County Taxpayers Association. He also had the highest rating of the Palmetto Liberty PAC on its legislative scorecard and was named a “taxpayer hero” by the Club for Growth.

He has worked aggressively to lower the tax burden of South Carolinians, control spending, fight expansion of government bureaucracy, ensure greater transparency in government, and to provide more choice and accountability in education.

Sitting on the Agriculture and Natural Resources, Judiciary, Labor, Commerce and Industry and Transportation committees, Senator Bright is a key force in the South Carolina Senate as an advocate for the people of his Senate district. Senator Bright also serves on the William Wallace Caucus, a non-legislative caucus that votes against government intrusion, wasteful spending and unnecessary regulation.

Prior to his current senatorial duties, Senator Bright served on the Spartanburg County School Board working hard to advocate for students, parents, and taxpayers.

Senator Bright sits on the Attorney General’s Commission on the Family 2001 Advisory Board, Palmetto Family Council’s Board of Directors, and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary’s Board of Visitors. He attends Roebuck Baptist Church, where he is an active member and along with his wife who serves as the pianist.

Senator Lee Bright lives in Spartanburg with his wife, Amy and two children, Kaylee and Kendyl.
