COLUMBIA, S.C. (News Release) – South Carolina state Rep. Joe Neal at a press conference on Tuesday endorsed Sen. Bernie Sanders in the 2016 presidential race. Neal represents district 70 in the South Carolina state legislature.
“My support for Bernie Sanders is about the future and what it holds for us and our children,” Neal said. “A Sanders presidency will lead to access to quality healthcare, tuition-free higher education, expanding and securing social security, putting controls on Wall Street, and securing a $15 minimum wage that will strengthen the middle class. I also share Sen. Sanders’ commitment to ending mass incarceration and reforming our broken criminal justice system.”
“We are so thrilled to have Rep. Neal join the political revolution,” said South Carolina state director Chris Covert. “He is a respected legislator and public servant and he will be an invaluable asset to our efforts here in the Palmetto state.”
