Katon Dawson and Howard Rich

Here’s a video of 2 of my friends and supporters. SC GOP Chairman Katon Dawson and I go back to grass roots work in the Republican Party. He’s done a great job with the party as all except one of our statewide elected positions are Republican. During Katon’s tenure we’ve seen increases in the Republican majority grown in the legislature even though we’ve taken a hit nationally.

The other gentleman in the video is Howard Rich. He’s, New York businessman who I visited with a while back when our family was in the Big Apple. He gave us a few tips on navigating the town and finding good eats. Howie’s a self described “city slicker” who’s wife, Andrea is from Tennessee. Andrea enjoys grits as we sent them a bag from Timm’s Mill, Pendleton’s grist mill in my district.
