Optics of President Biden’s withdrawal from Afghanistan continue to fill the screens of residents in the Pee Dee, as well as, Horry County.

To date, the primary race for the U.S. 7th Congressional District has been focused on Tom Rice and his vote to impeach former President Donald Trump.

Americans are just now waking up to the reality of what a Joe Biden Presidency is all about.

According to a recent ABC News Poll, a majority — 55% — of the public say they are pessimistic about the direction of the country, a marked change from the roughly one-third (36%) that said the same in an ABC News/Ipsos poll published May 2.

Even according to left leaning CNN, data from a Reuters-Ipsos poll showed that Biden’s approval rating dropped from 53% on Friday to 46% on Tuesday — a dip that seems directly tied to the chaos happening in Afghanistan and the President’s somewhat-slow response to it.

Ultimately, the Biden administration’s failures are certain to become a part of the U.S. 7th Congressional District conversation.


What has become increasingly clear to local voters is that we need to elect a candidate that can build coalitions with other like minded candidates. The system is broken. A solution will require an entire team of sound conservatives to fix these problems.

The solitary Rambo candidate promising to go to Washington and shoot up the town is nothing more than sensational rhetoric and Ka bookie theatre.


If we are looking for a candidate with a proven track record of working well through teams, the 7th need look no further than Ken Richardson.

Ken Richardson is a proven conservative leader

Richardson has proven himself as a leader than can work with and through teams to bring about positive change.

As President of the Board at Horry Georgetown Technical College, Richardson transformed the school into one that now offers high paying jobs for I.T. Specialists, Nursing, Culinary Arts, Cosmetology, Cybersecurity (AAS Degree), Dental Hygiene, Robotics Technology, Surgical Technology, Teacher Education, Construction Management Technology among scores of others.

Graduates can earn as much as $80,000 annually immediately upon graduation.


Who else in Horry County could have managed a  $767.1 million budget and the complications caused by Covid 19 last year?

Who would have wanted that job? Richardson did.

His school board team, his administration and a team of dedicated teachers took on the task head first.

FORBES ranks Horry County Schools as #2 In The State Of South Carolina As Being One Of America’s Best Employers!

Public School Review states: For the 2021 school year, there are 55 public schools serving 44,069 students in Horry County, SC. Horry County has one of the highest concentrations of top ranked public schools in South Carolina.


Results like these are not by accident. Results like these come from leadership that knows how to plan, lead, organize, and work through and with teams.

Teachers, School Board Members, administrators and service staff love to work alongside Ken Richardson. Those are simply facts.


If we intend on sending someone to Washington, let’s send a proven, results oriented leader.

Things are so broken, the person we send must be a coalition builder working among like minded people of our same tribe.

Let’s not make another Joe Biden mistake, which will require a post-purchase decision, like the one all of Americans are waking up to today.
