(Greenville, SC) Today, political newcomer Bobby Cox, a conservative reform candidate reported raising over $25,000 in his first financial report since announcing his campaign for state house district 21 in Greenville. By contrast, incumbent SC Representative Phyllis Henderson, who has held the seat since 2011, reported raising just over $21,000 over the same time period. “We need to clean up the state house, fight for term limits, and get real ethics reform passed,” Cox said. “These initial campaign fundraising numbers helps us to spread our conservative pro-reform message to the voters and demonstrate growing momentum for our cause.” Cox has served with the most elite units in the Army to include the 101st Airborne Division, 82nd Airborne Division and the 75th Ranger Regiment of the U.S. Army Special Operations Command. While deployed, Bobby conducted strategic level raids to topple terrorist cell networks as well as nation stability operations. Bobby also served as a Ranger Instructor between deployments training Army leaders to become Ranger qualified soldiers. When elected, Bobby plans to use his experience serving in the US Army to help bring long-overdue reform to the South Carolina legislature. “I’ve lived by a code my entire adult life whether it was the Honor Code at The Citadel or the Ranger Creed which expects the highest level of conduct in our daily lives,” said Cox. “I will bring this mentality to the State House and demand major ethics reform. Our elected officials should be held by a different standard, the highest one, not the lowest.” Bobby Cox will appear on the ballot for state house district 21 in the Republican Primary on June 12th.
