CCDP Newsletter: Democratic Candidates Set

8 mins read

2022 CANDIDATE FILING HAS ENDED

Filing for all partisan offices in the state of South Carolina for the 2022 elections ended today at noon. That means we now know who will be the leaders we seek to elect and now turn toward the June primaries and the November general election.

However, we want to make sure that we fully introduce these candidates to all of the Charleston Democrats. Therefore, next week, we will feature a brief overview of the Democratic candidates who will be on your ballots in June and November. We are asking candidates to send their websites/social media and donation links. In the coming weeks, we will give a more in-depth look into each race and provide short bios of each Democratic candidate.

You can see who has filed through the button below.

FIGHTING ANTI-TRUTH BILLS IN SC LEGISLATURE

With the SC State Legislature currently in session, many Republicans have been pushing anti-truth bills in an attempt to control and distort our education process. There is an organized movement to defeat these bills on the committee level, as Republicans lack a solid consensus. However, to ensure that these anti-truth bills fail, we need people to flood the public comments.

Please visit https://www.protruthsc.org and https://www.naacpldf.org/sc-protruth/ to make your voice heard and ensure that truth prevails in South Carolina!

TELL SENS. GRAHAM & SCOTT TO SUPPORT JUDGE JACKSON

With the Senate Judiciary hearings now over, we want to remind you to urge our Senators to support the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson.

President Joe Biden has made the historic decision to nominate a respected jurist and former public defender, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, to fill the vacancy of the US Supreme Court created by Justice Stephen Breyer’s announced retirement. This nomination makes Judge Jackson the first African-American woman nominated to our nation’s highest court, a milestone that has taken far too long to occur, but must be celebrated nonetheless. Judge Jackson served as an editor on the Harvard Law Review, clerked for Justice Breyer, and has served on the federal judiciary for nearly nine years, currently serving on the US Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit. This historic nomination has received backing not just from Democrats, activists, and liberal groups, but also from prominent conservative legal voices, who have fully endorsed the nomination and highlighted Judge Jackson’s immense qualifications.

We want to encourage each and every one of you to email and call our two US Senators, Lindsey Graham (who voted to confirm Judge Jackson to the DC Circuit less than a year ago) and Tim Scott, to urge them to support the confirmation of Judge Jackson to the US Supreme Court.

Below you can find their information and basic sample emails. Please do not just copy and paste these samples emails. Make at least a small change early and another late in the letter. Identifying yourself by precinct is a good way to let them know you’re an informed voter. It’s on your voter registration card or at scvotes.org at “Check My Voter Registration.” Also, feel free to respond to this newsletter with any questions about urging support of this historic nomination.

Senator Lindsey Graham- (202) 224-5972

Senator Graham:
I support President Biden’s nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. Please swiftly confirm the nomination of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the Supreme Court of the United States of America. 
Because you recently voted to confirm her appointment to the Court of Appeals, you have every reason to do so again.  
Sincerely,
[NAME]
South Carolina Voter

Senator Scott:
