McMaster for Governor Campaign Announces Veterans Coalition

October 10, 2018

Coalition Co-Chaired by Adjutant General Bob Livingston & Medal of Honor recipient Maj. Gen. Jim Livingston

COLUMBIA – Today, the McMaster for Governor campaign announced a coalition of veterans from across the state who have endorsed Henry McMaster in his re-election campaign. In addition to the strong backing from veterans, the governor also announced an initial list of legislative priorities for the upcoming year, which resulted from the governor’s Veterans Policy Advisory Committee.

“The state is going definitely in the right direction economically and as far as taking care of everyone–to include our schools, to include our workers. And it’s just great to have this group of people recognizing what our governor is doing for us.” – Adjutant General Bob Livingston

“You couldn’t ask for a better economy than you have here in the state of South Carolina, and that’s what veterans are looking for. They want to come to a state, when they get out of the military, where they can get a good job. They also want to be appreciated for their service. And what we’re now doing and expanding, is we’re expanding that appreciation for our veterans through this new organization…We’ve got a program, the governor’s got a vision, and it’s been a real honor to follow him as he implements that vision.” – Maj. Gen. Jim Livingston
