Endorsed by Tea Party Congressmen Mick Mulvaney (R-SC 5) and Jeff Duncan (R-SC 3). Supported by many tea party groups including the Tea Party Leadership Fund. Recipient of awards from the Chamber of Commerce and the South Carolina Club for Growth.
Larry Grooms is the true conservative running for Congress. He’s a true defender of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
A small business owner, Larry Grooms ran for State Senate due to his frustration with the burdensome regulations. In the state senate, he has received numerous awards. His website states:
A champion of the free market principles of lower taxes and limited government, he was named ‘Friend of the Taxpayer’ by the S.C. Association of Taxpayers and was recognized by the state Chamber of Commerce as a ‘100 Percent Business Advocate’.
I did some research on my own and found that he got a B from the SC Club for Growth during the 2011-2012 Session, which makes him the 8th most conservative in the South Carolina State Senate.
He also has a proven record of standing up for pro-family values as he states:
Larry is committed to strengthening families and preserving the sanctity of life. He’s earned a perfect 100% rating from the Palmetto Family Council and received the Westendorff Award for Service to Those in Need from the United Methodist Relief Center. A leader in the education reform movement, he is an outspoken advocate for school choice, charter schools and home schools.
And Washington D.C. needs him to bring these values to the capital that is suppose to be for WE THE PEOPLE! And two conservative congressmen stated as such:
Congressman Mick Mulvaney (HAFA: 95% and Club for Growth: 99%) stated as he endorsed State Senator Grooms:
“Conservatives like Jeff and I need Larry to stand with us on the most important issues facing our country today. When it comes to reducing taxes, cutting wasteful Washington spending and protecting our liberties, I believe Larry Grooms is the right man for the job. Larry has been in the trenches, and he has proven his conservative credentials in the state senate. We want Larry on our team. While there are many good candidates in the field – Larry’s record is one we know and trust. He will go to Washington and protect South Carolina from day one.
Larry’s Record is One We Know And Trust.”
And Congressman Jeff Duncan (HAFA: 97% and Club for Growth: 97%) stated similarly about Larry Grooms:
“South Carolina’s Congressional Delegation is known across the country and in Washington for being a united voice for conservatism. In fact, we’ve earned a reputation of working together, standing on principle and protecting South Carolina values. It’s important to ensure that the person who replaces Tim Scott be a reliable conservative, a proven fighter and a leader who will join our mission to cut wasteful Washington spending.
The Tea Party Leadership Fund sent out an e-mail praising Larry Grooms and stated:
It is 100% crystal clear that, out of a crowded field, Larry is the ONLY candidate who can fill the big shoes left open by Tim Scott’s appointment to the Senate.
So today, LLPH is proud to join with conservative voices across this nation and South Carolina’s 1st District in endorsing Larry Grooms to be the next congressman from South Carolina’s 1st District. We are confident he will lead with humility, honor, and integrity. And he will be ready to get his hands dirty for freedom and cutting wasteful spending on day one! As we have seen, there are 3 types of Republicans: the RINOs, the “I’ll vote correctly” ones, and the ones who will get their hands dirty for freedom. Larry Grooms is the right man for the job as he falls in the third category and we are proud to endorse him for congress!
