South Carolina House Democratic Leader Todd Rutherford Endorses Joe Cunningham for Governor


Today, South Carolina House Democratic Leader Todd Rutherford endorsed Joe Cunningham in the Governor’s race at a press conference in Columbia.


“This guy can really do it. He not only flipped a district that Trump won by 13 points, he went to Washington and broke through the partisan rancor and passed two bills into law,” Rep. Rutherford said. “Joe has been somebody that I’ve admired from afar for years but now am able to admire up close. I want everybody to know that this man standing to my left, Joe Cunningham, should be the next governor of the state of South Carolina.”


“I am honored to receive the endorsement of Democratic Leader Todd Rutherford,” Joe Cunningham said. “I appreciate Todd putting his faith in our campaign and in our vision for the future. Todd has been a leader on issues like marijuana legalization, sports betting, Medicaid Expansion, and voting rights. I look forward to working with him and other legislators as we bring South Carolina out of the past and into the future. It’s time to turn the page in South Carolina and write the next chapter in our state’s history.”
