Sen. DeMint stresses importance of Saturday’s Primary

web posted January 18, 2008
Dear Editor,
This Saturday many of us will head to the polls to vote in South Carolina's Republican Primary. Every four to eight years our state plays a critical role in choosing our party's nominee for President. We must not forget that with this power comes great responsibility.

Our nation is at critical moment in its history, and the future of the conservative movement is at stake. There are many things each of us needs to look for in our next President. We need a man who has executive leadership experience in order to face the many challenges to our nation's security and prosperity.

The Congressional Favor-Factory continues to pump out billions of dollars in wasteful spending while our national debt spirals out-of-con trol. Our next President must bring solutions to the problems facing Social Security, the increased cost of healthcare, and immigration.

Washington experience is the problem, not the solution. We cannot afford to have a President who has fought for amnesty for illegal immigrates, voted against the Bush Tax Cuts, and curtailed our First Amendment rights in the ill-conceived campaign finance legislation.

I urge you to watch this video about the qualities I believe our next President must possess in order to revive the Reagan Coalition. We've come a long way since 1994. But all of our hard work will be in vain if we fail to make the right decision in the voting both this Saturday.

We must bring change to our nation, and this year change will begin with South Carolina.

Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC)
