James Clyburn endorsed Joe Biden this morning. What follows is a brief thread on how much this matters and what my book on the South Carolina primary with @gibbsknotts says about endorsements. Short version: this is indeed a big deal. #sc2020 #scpol #clyburn #firstinthesouth
First, some theory. Endorsements can have a big impact in nomination contests since voters can’t rely on party-id like in general elections. Endorsements fill the void giving voters a “cue” to mimic an informed decision. Of course, this hinges on reputation of the endorser.
In this case, Clyburn is the most influential Democrat in the state. He is the no. 3 ranking Democrat in the House and the most powerful African American in a state where over 60 percent of the Democratic primary electorate is Black.

1/ Just got off the phone with Mark Sanford, who is in Washington this morning (I could hear the Metro in the background), where he is making media rounds post-announcement. Some highlights from our phone call...
#scpol #2020Election #scnews #chsnews #politics
2/ Sanford hopes to begin hiring campaign staff this week. Declaring today was a key part of making sure he can recruit/attract the political talent he needs to run this campaign. #scpol #2020Election #scnews #chsnews #politics
3/ Speaking of running the campaign, this one is unlike any he has done before. Usually very very planned, this campaign is much more incremental (step by step, week by week, month by month.) "That’s the complete opposite of every campaign I've ever run in my life!" #scpol

And there it is folks Chambliss admits that the MS bill is written as a direct challenge to Roe & designed to be sent to #SCOTUS to challenge it.

The health and safety of Alabama women is being used to as a political football to advance an extreme agenda. #HB314 #alpolitics
Chambliss also states that rulings from #SCOTUS are not designed to be place forever. Essentially that precedent be damned if it does not fit the political agenda of the party in power. This should be chilling to EVERYONE who claims to believe the rule of law #HB314 #alpolitics
You can tune in here:…
HUGE shout out to the AL Democrats who fighting tooth & nail to protect the rights of women. And even bigger shout out to the groups on the ground: @PPSE_Advocates @YellowFund @ALWomensCenter #HB314 #alpolitics #StopTheBans

I’m a mom, a businesswoman and a state legislator serving South Carolina. At a young age, I was determined to forge my own path through life. And nearly 20 years ago I became the first female graduate of The Citadel after following in my father’s footsteps.
I also have experience starting my own business and in 2017 ran for - and won - a seat in the state legislature, on my own terms.

As women we make a fundamental mistake when we make our identity as women the WHOLE story.

The point of breaking glass ceilings is so that, after they’re broken, it doesn’t matter anymore. The American experiment is built on the premise that if you set a goal, show up on time and work hard, then success is within reach. (3/6)

"Where your treasure is, there will your heart be also" (Matthew 6:21): Here's a breakdown of where the SC-01 candidates are getting their money:
#scpol #SC01
(note: all totals are smaller than reported totals - these analyses are based on only the itemized receipts immediately available from FEC data. More analysis to come later)
First: small vs. large donors. @JoeCunninghamSC received more donations than @karringtonsc at every price range (except >2700, since only PACs can give at that level)
