Today, former candidate for SC Senate District 42 Margaret Rush endorsed Marlon Kimpson in the Democratic run-off on August 27th. Rush missed earning a spot in the run-off herself by only a few dozen votes.
Today, Rush made the following statement:
“I am today endorsing the candidacy of Marlon Kimpson as the Democratic nominee for Senate District 42. I have had ample opportunity over the past few months to analyze and observe Marlon’s approach to service in the District, and I am confident that the issues that I am concerned about will be addressed through his election. He has assured me that he will follow through on those issues of importance, and it is based on that assurance that I am happy to endorse him. It is my intention to vote for and support Marlon, and I encourage my supporters to do the same,” Rush said.
Kimpson said the endorsement is great news for his surging campaign.
“Mrs. Rush ran an extremely strong campaign. She is very respected by the voters of this district. Her endorsement is huge for us and I am honored to have it. I look forward to campaigning with her and talking with voters in the district about public education and health care for all,” Kimpson said.
