This year, four candidates will be on ballots across South Carolina representing the newly-minted American Party.
Former S.C. Education Superintendent and former S.C. Candidate for Governor Oscar Lovelace are behind the effort — an effort they say will bring term limits and a code of ethics to politics in South Carolina.
Rex said the candidates themselves hold moderate views.
“Were conservative on some issues, less conservative on others,” Rex said. “We’re sick and tired of the gridlock. We want to see things get done.”
Rex said the party will enforce those term limits and every candidate on the ballot under the party banner has undergone a thorough background check.
The American Party is fielding candidates for S.C. Superintendent of Education, Commissioner of Agriculture and the U.S. Senate.
