It's one thing that I'm ENDORSING @jamessmithsc for Governor and @carriganforcongress.
It's something completely different that Governor Jim Hodges has ENDORSED James Smith and Sean Carrigan as well.
Folks, I trust the former Governor. I've never heard a single level-headed person say one word contrary about him.
His leadership pointed South Carolina in a completely new, positive direction. Because of Jim Hodges, we have the South Carolina SmartState Program, which I had the honor to manage for many years--a program that brought in more than $1 billion--BILLION--in non-state economic development contributions to academic/industry research.
The SC SmartState Program was hailed as the best program of its kind in the country, "which should be the envy of all other states." We recruited more than 100 of the world's greatest scientists and engineers, along with their research teams, to the Palmetto State.
Our burgeoning industries in automotive manufacturing, bio-engineering, future fuels, stroke research, tourism, etc., owe much to the Hodges Administration.
When I see a Governor Hodges endorsement, what I hear is: "James Smith and Sean Carrigan are individuals who will lead us boldly into a future with increased opportunities and betterment for every citizen." Please support #JamesSmith:
