“When we turn to creating jobs and encouraging economic development, we need to be thinking about where the smart investments are. The business community has told us repeatedly that these smart investments are infrastructure and education. Nationally, we’ve seen economies prosper where these two pillars are built up - it’s time we, in South Carolina, turn toward them as well. We can create long term prosperity by empowering our businesses, not by taking shortcuts.”


“The most fundamental duty of our government is to keep us safe. We can accomplish our security goals, but we have to be smart and vigilant, keeping up with the world as threats change and develop. And we can do this without giving up the liberties given to us in the Constitution. In the end, our security doesn’t depend on us being powerful, but on us using our power wisely.”
