Ralph Norman Has Backing Of GOP Heavyweights

State Representative Ralph Norman told a crowd of about 200 people in Rock Hill that he is running for the US House seat now occupied by Democrat John Spratt.

"The working families of the 5th District are going to have a conservative choice for Congress in 2006," said Representative Norman. "We are going to be partners in bringing the hometown values and conservative ideals of the 5th District of South Carolina to Washington, DC. The best ideas flow from the local folks to Washington, not the other way around. With a commitment to conservative principles, we can and will make a positive change for the future."

Norman comes out on the campaign trail with big-time Republican support. US Senators Lindsey Graham and Jim DeMint, as well as Governor Mark Sanford, joined the real estate developer for his announcement Thursday morning.

Gov. Sanford said, "During his time in Columbia, Ralph has been committed to keeping the taxpayers first in everything that he does. Now more than ever, we need that same conservative approach to government in Congress as well."

Norman says he has spent time at the White House talking with one of President Bush's top advisers, Karl Rove, and leaders of the national Republican Party during the past few months. Norman says he wants to bring conservative values to a conservative district.

He says Spratt is too liberal and too closely allied with national Democratic leaders.
