ANDERSON, S.C., Nov. 13, 2013 /Christian Newswire/ -- Tuesday night November 12th at the Anderson Civic Center U.S. Senate candidate Richard Cash held a successful BBQ fundraiser addressing faith, family, and freedom. An estimated 550 people attended the conservative family man and small businessman's event.
"What a tremendous turnout and show of support," Cash said, "especially considering that we are still seven months away from the primary date. It shows a great interest in replacing Senator Graham with someone who will more closely represent the values and principles that South Carolinians hold dear."
Cash was introduced by State Senator Kevin Bryant of Anderson, widely known as a staunch conservative. Also in attendance was Roy Costner IV of Liberty, who gave brief remarks about the national attention that resulted from his valedictorian speech in which he recited the Lord's Prayer. Cash stated, "Roy's story is a reminder that we must be willing to stand up for our Constitutional rights, and I have a record that demonstrates that I will speak up, stand up, and stand firm for life and liberty."
Cash claimed that his education and life experiences have prepared him to serve in the U.S. Senate. He reminded the audience that neither Ted Cruz nor Rand Paul had held elected office prior to winning Senate elections. Cash concluded, "If we want to change the direction of the country, we are going to have to change some of the leadership of the Republican Party, beginning with Lindsey Graham."
Richard Cash is a candidate in South Carolina for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Lindsey Graham. Cash is a magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, graduate of Furman University, with a degree in Economics and Business Administration.
