Standing in Solidarity 

I had the honor of attending the vigil at Temple Emanu-el in memory of the 11 people who tragically lost their lives in Pittsburgh. My heart breaks for their families and the entire Jewish community during this time. I will always stand with you against anti-Semitism and any other form of hatred or violence. There is no place for these evils in our society and we will fight them together.

Economic Good News Continues

  Republicans in Congress are working every day to restore economic competitiveness, rebuild our middle class, and create opportunity for the next generation. Our policies of less government, lower taxes, and less regulation are doing just that! If you need proof just look at the October Jobs Report which was released on Friday. The robust labor market beat expectations again, adding 250,000 new jobs with wage growth topping 3% for the first time since the recession! This is on top of record low unemployment and record high business and consumer confidence. I am so proud of how far we've come and am committed to further growing our economy through pro-growth policies!

Myrtle Beach Red Cross Tour

 
  I had the opportunity to tour the Myrtle Beach Red Cross to meet with volunteers and thank them for their efforts during Hurricane Florence. When thousands of people weren't sure if they were going to have food to eat or a place to sleep during the storm, The Red Cross was there to help. I am so grateful for their selfless work when we needed them most!   

 
 

Manufacturing Legislative Excellence Award

 
  I was honored to receive the National Association of Manufacturer's Award for Manufacturing Legislative Excellence for supporting policies that have strengthened manufacturing and created opportunities for South Carolina's workers. In 2016, President Obama and Democrats said that manufacturing jobs were never coming back, but after implementing common sense regulatory policies and pro-growth tax reform, we are in the midst of a manufacturing resurgence. I will continue to work with the Administration on policies that support manufacturing jobs and create new opportunities across all sectors of our economy.
