We’re All In This Together

By | fundraising | No Comments

Thanks to you our campaign announced today we have raised over $175,000 within the first month of launching.  The level of support we have received in just 32 days is encouraging and proves that Congressman Mick Mulvaney will face the toughest fight of his political career in November.

The people in South Carolina want a real voice in Congress, a leader who will help communities get the tools they need to get ahead by investing in people, education and roads and bridges. South Carolinians also want a leader who will stand up for our men and women in uniform against reckless sequestration cuts supported by Mulvaney and oppose bad trade deals that cost American jobs.

We only accepted one PAC check from Congressman Jim Clyburn’s BRIDGE PAC. In contrast, Congressman Mulvaney’s past reports show that over 70% of his campaign funds derived from PAC’s and not individual donors.

Among the many supporters, we received contributions of all sizes from many former teammates and Carolina greats from Ryan Brewer and Andre Goodman to longtime Carolina Panther Travelle Wharton, who also serves as Co-Chair of our campaign. Nobody can vouch for my character better than the guys I played alongside. Through blood, sweat and tears, you really get to know each other and create unbreakable bonds. It’s family. We’re all in this together.

As I’ve said from day one – I cannot do this without your continued support.  Please consider contributing $5, $10 or $25 TODAY to keep our momentum going. You may donate online by clicking on the donate button below.

Thank you again, I absolutely cannot do this without you!  Do not hesitate to reach out to me directly at 803-220-1008.

Joe Biden: Fran Has What It Takes

By | fundraising | No Comments

I’ve known Fran Person since he was a student at the University of South Carolina. Fran and I have worked together for years; he’s traveled the country and the world with me. He’s smart, he’s tireless and I don’t know anyone who doesn’t respect him.

If you want to know Fran, just look at his family: a big, military family committed to helping our country.

He is comfortable with heads of states as well as folks we’ve met on the street. He treats everyone with dignity – and the one thing that always comes through about Fran is his sincerity.

So it doesn’t surprise me that he wants to continue to serve his country. Fran knows what it takes to compete and win.

He’ll be a leader, a team player and a congressman that all in his district will be able to work with and trust. He knows how to get things done.

Fran and his team need your active support to help get the campaign off the ground. Please consider contributing $10, $25 or $50 TODAY as they launch their efforts.

If you have questions please visit his website directly.

Biden’s personal aide leaving

By | News | No Comments

(From Politico) Vice President Joe Biden’s personal aide for the past eight years – starting in the Senate office, then campaigning across all 99 counties in Iowa, and finally landing in the White House – will leave the administration Friday to move back home to start Monday as a high-level adviser at his alma mater, the University of South Carolina, in Columbia.

As a body guy who became a confidant, Fran Person anticipated Biden’s moods and questions, served as team captain and gatekeeper on the road, and showed the ropes to visitors and new staffers. Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said: “Fran’s strongest quality and greatest diplomatic skill was in gently persuading the Vice President it was time to end the meeting!”
