It is my pleasure to be among the many solid conservatives who are supporting Chad Connelly's candidacy for the United States House of Representatives for South Carolina's 5th Congressional District.
Chad has worked for many years as a leader on pro-family and pro-life efforts in South Carolina and across the nation and will make us proud in the United States Congress. For the past 3 plus years, as the first-ever National Director of Faith Engagement for either party, he has traveled tirelessly to 40 states and spoken to over 80,000 pastors and faith leaders with a message I have pushed for years as well: "It is crucial that Christians and people of faith engage in the public arena like never before."
For years, I have joined millions of people across America in praying that God would raise-up leaders to restore this great nation. I am excited that Chad Connelly answered that call and has stepped up to offer his services to the people of South Carolina's 5th District as their Representative in Congress.
As a private individual, I am honored to endorse Chad Connelly for Congress, and pray that his election will be the start of a new generation of leaders who will return this nation to the constitutional principles upon which it was founded.
