It is easy to feel politically discouraged in South Carolina. It has been over fifteen years since a Democrat has been governor and two decades since there has been a Democratic majority in the state legislature. I challenge you to consider this your call to action. It is easy for our lawmakers to believe they are safe; however, our victory in our SC-01 district proves we are capable of changing the state for the better.
The time is now to fight for the people of South Carolina. Some of our most prominent politicians are more concerned with coddling to the current Presidential administration and have neglected our public education system, infrastructure, and the welfare of their constituents. While 2020 is the year we hope to remove Donald Trump from office, we also need to also focus on our state and local elections.
Before I was elected, I made a promise to utilize CDSC as a force to educate college students about local and state elections. Including, holding political rallies/town halls with state and local candidates on college campuses across the state, creating a PAC to give our chapters financial support as they encourage their fellow students and communities members to be more politically active, and using social media as a tool to connect with as many college students as possible to educate them about our local and state elections.
I encourage you to join CDSC in our fight!
President, College Democrats of South Carolina
