More TEA Party Leaders Join in Supporting Bill Connor for US Senate, Issue Statement


Columbia, SC - The week after prominent state Tea Party leader Joe Dugan endorsed Afghanistan combat veteran, attorney, and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Bill Connor, more leaders of the Tea Party movement across the state have followed suit.
We, as individual patriot leaders in South Carolina’s constitutional community, fully endorse Bill Connor to be the next US Senator from South Carolina.

Bill is a constitutional conservative who will fight to stop the massive spending, bailouts, and debt that are destroying our country. He isn't afraid to stand up to the Washington establishment and he will do what it takes to stop Obamacare, amnesty, and stop government intrusion in our lives.

Bill has been a part of the Tea Party movement in South Carolina since its inception in 2009. He spoke at the first SC Tea Party event on Feb 27, 2009 and at the following event two months later on April 15 where he introduced Jim DeMint. Over the years, and as the movement has grown nationwide, he has not wavered from the conservative principles that brought him into active politics all those years ago.

Bill Connor is a 24 year Airborne Ranger Infantry officer and Afghanistan combat veteran and currently serves as a Lt. Colonel in the US Army reserves. Bill also is a partner in a successful general law practice with an emphasis on military law. He will stand with and support our troops.

As a family man, along with his wife who is a practicing OB/GYN in South Carolina and veteran herself, he has personal experience from a patient and doctor perspective on the harm that Obamacare is doing to the quality, availability and cost of our healthcare system. He will be a champion and stand with Ted Cruz and Mike Lee to stop this dangerous legislation.

We believe it is vital to America’s future to send a true comprehensive, Reagan-conservative to replace Lindsey Graham, and Bill fits that description best among those challenging Senator Graham. He is a fiscal, social, and national defense conservative, who will not only stand up for Constitutionalism at home, but also stand for a strong military, stand by allies like Israel, and stand true to a "strategic national interest only" foreign policy.
