A Letter from Richard
Thank you for visiting my website and allowing me to introduce myself. I am a family man and a businessman with a deep concern for the future of our children and country. I believe that the origins and foundation of American greatness lies in Christianity, Capitalism, and the Constitution. I believe that this is not only our heritage, but it is our hope for the future. As such, I am unapologetically committed to faith and family as the essential elements of enduring freedom.
I am running to replace Senator Lindsey Graham because I believe that after 20 years in Washington he is out of touch with South Carolina values and voters. Although Senator Graham might be hard-working and sincere, I cannot distinguish his core principles and can no longer trust his judgment. It is time for a new voice in Washington. We need a voice that represents Christian, conservative, and Republican principles instead of the latest bi-partisan “deal” that simply makes matters worse.
I am a complete outsider to the political establishment; however, this is not my first involvement in politics. In 2010, I ran for the opportunity to serve as your congressman for the third district. I finished first in a field of six candidates in the Republican primary. In the runoff I lost only by a narrow margin to Representative Jeff Duncan. I know how to run, I know how to fight, and I am ready to go.
While I bring a strong and principled message to this campaign, do not think for a minute that I am running simply to deliver a message. I am running to win, but I will need your help and support to make that happen. And so I ask you today to get informed, get involved, and get invested. The future of your children and country depend on it.
I look forward to meeting you on the campaign trail and hearing your interests and concerns. Thank you, God bless you, and may…
America Bless God,
