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)

@Ben_C_Chambers oh yes, not just "some" - at least a few thousand:

@Ben_C_Chambers As John Hope Franklin showed, as early as 1834, Southern slaveholders - led by Fire-Eaters mostly out of #SouthCarolina - were eyeing Brazil (& indeed the entire Gulf & Caribbean - as places to expand their slavery empire.

According to Chuck Todd, host of @MTPDaily, this tweet is a “tell” that Donald Trump is panicked about the effort from 18 Republican Attorneys General to challenge the Affordable Care Act (ACA) in court▶️seeking to end protections for those with pre-existing conditions. #LieGate
⚡️It’s certainly not a good look for Republicans less than 3 weeks from the November Election.

▶️Neither is talking about separating more children from their parents and putting them in cages
▶️Neither is talking about stripping Social Security & Medicare programs
▶️Neither is protecting the murderers of a respected journalist, then using money as the reason and inflating the numbers while you’re doing it

🙌🙌🙌You know what's going to be sooooooooooo good?!?

🔪When Trump turns on Rudy Giuliani.

🔥Can't wait.

[With Rudy Giuliani, What You See is What You Get]

Giuliani has "tragically plummeted from greatness."

theatlantic.com/politics/archi…
📃Well, that was the narrative.

💥But the article points out that Rudy Giuliani was walking the streets on 9/11 because his Emergency Center—which he insisted on locating on the 23rd floor of 7 World Trade Center—in spite of advice from the Police Commissioner was gone.
🍸There are many people who don't believe in the story that Giuliani has recently had a "fall from grace." The article quotes legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin describing Giuliani with “naked aggression and a thirst for attention.” Aggression, meaning refusal to listen to subordinates

While we are all working to importantly save this country by electing Democrats to #FlipTheHouse and #FlipTheSenate in November-

Electing Democratic state governors is extremely important, too. They can be an important line of defense at the state level. 1/6
State governors can:
✅Help #SaveTheACA
✅Help save and expand #Medicare
✅Protect #NetNeutrality
✅Protect the environment and deal with #climatechange
✅Help end #Gerrymandering and voter suppression.
✅Enact #GunSense legislation.
✅Protect abortion rights.
And more. 2/6
Here are governors' seats we need to hold or are competitive to flip. Please follow, donate, add them to your RT lists, & if you are local, get involved with their campaigns on the ground. Candidates all through primary elections.

#SouthCarolina, please call your state Reps & Senators to block these resolutions to call a Constitutional Convention. These are coming from all sides, left, right and in between! #KochBrothers org CoS, Tea Party & Citizens United orgs are getting desperate! #NoConConForAnything
The first two on this list are promoted by American-promise-dot-net. The third is another organization or possibly written by independent Republicans--13 of them. In all, SIXTEEN Republicans are endorsing legislation to ban Citizens United! Don't you think that's strange?!?
Here's evidence of American-promise-dot-net endorsing these first 2 bills H4174 and S0571! Tell your legislators to vote NO on these deceitful bills!
Republicans posing as Democrats! Wake up blue!!! #NoConCon

#ConCon 101
The concept of a Constitutional Convention is foreign to many people. Understandable, since we've only had one in the entire history of the United States and it produced The Constitution. So I thought I'd write this thread to try make it understandable to everyone.
For anyone who doesn't want to or doesn't have the time to read this whole thread, I am also posting ConCon 101 EZ and ConCon 101 EZ+ which are much quicker. The purpose of this thread? #NoConCon
To convince you how vital it is for our country's future to oppose ANY state resolutions for ANY type of #ConCon. They are all dangerous for Democrats. #NoConCon
