SC Senate Majority Leader Comments on Floyd Announcement

South Carolina Senate Majority Leader Harvey Peeler released the following statement today following SCGOP Chairman Karen Floyd’s announcement that she will not seek re-election:

“On behalf of South Carolina’s Republican State Senators, I want to thank Karen Floyd for her service to our state and our party. She didn’t just win this cycle. She beat our friends across the aisle into submission. She pushed our party more to its conservative roots, built bridges with the Tea Party movement, made our party more diverse and technologically advanced and she helped keep our vital First in the South status. And she did it all during a tough time of change and controversy. The effects of Karen’s dedication and hard work will be felt for many years.”
