"New jobs and a stronger economy are issues that are dependent on the kind of solid conservative leadership that Senator Graham and Senator Scott have shown on behalf of the people of South Carolina," explained Cal Dooley, President and CEO of ACC. "Their support for policies that encourage greater domestic energy production, promote innovation and keep taxes low has been critical to America's manufacturing sector and small businesses in South Carolina and around the country,"

Dooley added, "In a time when much of the political discourse in America is negative, it's important to highlight the positive work Senator Graham and Senator Scott are doing to promote the two most important issues facing our country – economic growth and job creation."  

The advertisements will run for three weeks throughout South Carolina, including Greenville, Columbia and Charleston, and will appear as online video ads as well. They encourage constituents to contact the offices of the Senators to tell them to keep up the good work.
