Upstate Senator Lee Bright picked up another impressive Congressional endorsement Wednesday, as Kentucky Congressman Thomas Massie officially threw his support behind Bright’s campaign.
“Today I am happy to announce my endorsement of Lee Bright for United States Senate,” said Congressman Massie in a statement, adding, “There are several good candidates challenging the status quo in this race, but it is time for conservatives to rally around the clear leader in this battle. It’s time to make a change, and we must unite against the Washington establishment if we are to prevail. I am certain that Lee Bright will stand strong for our Constitution in Washington, because he has a proven record of defending liberty in the South Carolina Senate. Based on my conversations with him, I am confident that Lee Bright will be a steadfast ally of true conservatives like Senator Rand Paul, Senator Mike Lee and Senator Ted Cruz. He has my full support.”
Bright welcomes this strong support, saying, “Our campaign is honored to have such a strong endorsement from Congressman Massie. He represents the positive change that started coming to Washington over the past few elections. I can’t wait to get up there and join Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee in moving that change forward in the Senate. I know Thomas Massie will be doing the same in the House. These are trying times for so many Americans, and Washington is the main reason why.”
Bright went on to say, “It’s obvious that Lindsey Graham has no clue what our government is doing to our citizens, and he has no idea the genius and leadership being shown by Senators Cruz, Lee and Paul. That’s why South Carolinians are going to retire him this year.”
Bright has dominated polls and endorsements among a crowded field of challengers to Lindsey Graham for the Republican nomination to the U.S. Senate.
