Samuel Harms, former chairman of the Greenville County Republican Party, announced today his candidacy for South Carolina House District 21. That Greenville County seat was held by Bill Wylie who died earlier this month. Harms made his announcement in Greenville.
Harms says there is too much government in Columbia.
We need to have comprehensive tax reform. We need to reduce the size of the government but we need more government accountability and I can get that done. We need to put Columbia on more than just a diet. The government is growing bigger and bigger, while the private sector is getting smaller and smaller.
The District 21 special election will be held on October 12th.
Wylie, a 70-year-old Simpsonville Republican, died of a heart attack while on vacation in Wyoming.
