South Carolina State Senator Shane Massey is a class act.
Not opinion – fact.
Massey is a young (35) small town guy with big ideas and a heart to match. Every time I talk to those in the political “know” in South Carolina, just about every one of them says of Massey “he’s the future of South Carolina.”
Suits me. He’s the kind of future South Carolina so desperately needs.
Last month, Massey ended his bid for the state’s Third Congressional seat. For the citizens of the Third, it was a bittersweet decision. ONE Shane Massey would have been significant, but with a couple of hundred Shane Masseys in the House of Representatives, America would turn on a dime and instantly become the great nation our ancestors left us. The good out of his withdrawal is that he stays in the state, working – as always – to remove the rot of crony politics and lobbyist influence from within the State House dome.
On Thursday, Massey endorsed fellow legislator State Representative Jeff Duncan for Congress. Duncan’s record and, more importantly, his reputation, speaks very well of his potential to be a change agent for South Carolinians and conservative ideals in Congress. An endorsement from a man of the character and conviction of Shane Massey says to the voters “This is the man I want to represent me in Washington,” and people should stop what they’re doing and take note.
We listen to folks we trust recommend restaurants, movies and places to go on vacation. Nothing – NOTHING is more important than the future of this country. Trusting the advice of a man like Shane Massey on which candidate will help South Carolina and the country is not only wise, it’s necessary.
Were all the candidates for the Third Congressional seat equal, this endorsement would tilt the scale to Jeff Duncan like dropping an Abrams tank on the end of a see-saw. But all the candidates are NOT equal and Massey’s nod to Duncan accentuates that.
Like Shane Massey, Jeff Duncan is a class act.
