I am humbled and grateful for the opportunity the citizens of District 35 have given me to be their voice in the state Senate. I want to thank the voters for putting their trust in me and I promise to serve them with honor and integrity, and work hard every day to merit their trust. My pledge is to be a Senator for all the people in the district and a Senator for South Carolina.
I look forward to serving with my new colleagues as we work together to improve the quality of life for our communities and our state.
I want to thank my wife, Bronwyn, for being my partner in this campaign and my family and friends for their support.
And I want to wish my opponent, Tony Barwick, the best. He ran a tough campaign. I'm proud that after this campaign, he is still someone I can call a friend. I look forward to working with him as we both strive to make South Carolina a better place for current and future generations.
