Archie Parnell Statement on Results of SC5 GOP Runoff

(SUMTER, SC -- May 16) – Democratic Nominee for South Carolina’s Fifth Congressional District Archie Parnell released the following on the outcome of the GOP Runoff in the SC5 Special Election:

“The power elites in Washington intent on dividing the American people and the Republican Party got exactly what they wanted tonight. But now the people of the 5th Congressional District have a clear choice. Do we want a leader who fights for better wages, affordable healthcare and equal justice for all, or a career politician who ignores dangerous threats to our national security and thinks pregnancy should be a pre-existing condition?

“This election isn’t about Democrat and Republican. It’s about the people. This is the people’s seat and it’s time we took it back.”
