REPUBLICAN LIBERTY CAUCUS ENDORSES RAY NASH
Local, State, and National Boards Endorse Former Sheriff in US House District 1 Race
The Republican Liberty Caucus National Board announced Friday that it unanimously voted to endorse former Dorchester County Sheriff Ray Nash in the First Congressional District Special Primary. They joined previous unanimous decisions by the Lowcountry Chapter Board and the RLC of South Carolina Board of Directors. There will be a public announcement, of the endorsement, Saturday, March 9th at 11:30 AM in the Summerville Town Square at the corner of Richardson and Hwy 17-A.
According to Mr. Scott Pearson, State Chairman, “The 1st District Congressional Race this year offers the most liberty-minded field of candidates we’ve ever seen in a single race. In a field of 16 candidates, we’re blessed with at least a half dozen that would stand out as strong defenders of liberty, including John Kuhn, Mark Sanford, Elizabeth Moffly, Larry Grooms, Jeff King, and Keith Blandford. However, if we are to have an impact, we believe it is important for those who value limited government to come together behind one candidate. That’s why, today, we are endorsing a strong conservative who knows and values the Constitution, Sheriff Ray Nash.”
Ms. Laurie Turner, Interim Chair of the Lowcountry RLC, said, “We are proud to endorse a constitutional conservative like Ray Nash. His proven leadership as Sheriff in Dorchester County and his work in the community prove he knows his constituents and will represent us well in Washington.”
“In a field of excellent candidates, Ray Nash stands out with the integrity and the dedication to constitutional principles,” said Dave Nalle, RLC National Chairman, “which will make him as great an advocate for the people in Washington as he was a guardian of their rights and safety while in uniform.”
Mr. Nash has been a law enforcement professional for thirty-four years, most recently in Afghanistan as the Criminal Justice Adviser for the U.S. Embassy in Kabul. During his career, Mr. Nash studied to become a Constitutional scholar, gaining knowledge and an unfailing respect for our country’s faith, heritage and founding principles. According to Sheriff Nash, “our nation is facing a number of moral and Constitutional crises, such as rampant fiscal irresponsibility, unbridled government expansion and an ever growing assault on our Constitutional freedoms.” He believes solutions can be found in the principles of Constitutional conservatism and takes seriously his oath to “Preserve, Protect and Defend…” Nash demonstrates a knowledge of the Constitution, respect for limited government, and appreciation for the work of the Republican Liberty Caucus.
The Republican Liberty Caucus is a nationwide grassroots organization founded in 1991 that promotes individual liberty, limited government, and free market economics within the Republican Party. You can find more information about the Republican Liberty Caucus of South Carolina at www.rlcsc.org
