"I promised the people of South Carolina’s 4th district that I would do my best to clean up Washington, solve tough problems, and honor their values, and today that service begins. Our country faces significant challenges, and I am determined to help keep us on the right track. We must find a way to work together and put the needs of our nation first, and I’m committed to doing that. It won’t be easy, but it’s time to stop the blame games and bickering and start getting the job done,” said Congressman Timmons.
“I heard the Upstate’s voters and will advance their priorities both in Washington and at home: they want a growing economy with high-paying jobs, a strong national defense and homeland security, education and opportunity for all, and a government we can be proud of. I’m optimistic that we can achieve all this and more in the coming years,” said Timmons.
