AIKEN, S.C. --- South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford today endorsed Scott Singer. Singer is running for State House District 81, which covers Aiken.
The Governor was in Aiken early this morning to make the announcement. He says, he has only endorsed a handful of candidates like this. He's doing it because Singer has a good local representation, his experience as a businessman, his stance on conservation and his history of making tough choices.
Singer is in a run-off with Tom Young for the Republican Primary. That will take place next Tuesday, June 24th. Polls will be open from 7am until 7pm for those in District 81 to vote.
