Senator Catherine Cortez Masto, Chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, issued the following statement congratulating Jaime Harrison on his primary victory in South Carolina:
“South Carolina is ready for a new kind of leadership that is rooted in doing right for the state instead of siding with the powerful special interests, and Jaime Harrison is up for the job. Jaime is a relentless advocate for South Carolinians. He is committed to serving his community as a mentor, a community leader, and a public servant. After earning a scholarship to attend Yale, Jaime came back home to South Carolina to teach students in his community and helped more kids like him go to college. We know he will continue this leadership in the Senate and will fight for affordable and accessible health care, investments in schools and job training, and the well-being of hardworking South Carolinians. Jaime’s commitment to getting the job done is exactly why he’s going to win this race.”
Born and raised in South Carolina, Jaime Harrison has always put his community first. As a community leader and former chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party, Jaime has spent his life investing in South Carolina communities and is now running for Senate to continue fighting for opportunity for all South Carolinians. His strong grassroots campaign has shattered state fundraising records since his first day in the race and Jaime outraised vulnerable incumbent Senator Lindsey Graham in Q1 and in the pre-primary filing.
