COLUMBIA, S.C. - South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Karen Floyd released the following statement:
"On the personal front, today's news is neither a Republican nor Democrat issue. It is sad that any family suffers like this, particularly when it is played out on a public stage.
Effective, responsive, and responsible government is a hallmark of our party. Conservative leaders have earned and kept the trust of South Carolina's majority for many years, and I will make every effort to ensure our party keeps that trust.
