Congressman Jeff Duncan files for re-election for Third Congressional District

Laurens, SC--South Carolina Congressman Jeff Duncan filed for re-election on Friday, at the South Carolina Elections Commission Headquarters in Columbia:

"Over the past year, we have seen a dramatic turnaround in our country. Jobs are being created, tax reform is letting people keep more of their hard earned money and making the United States more competitive abroad, our military is being rebuilt, government regulations are being cut, and our immigration laws are finally being enforced. We've come a long way in a short period of time, but we still have a long way to go. It's important that we have representatives in Washington who will work with President Trump to Keep Making America Great! That is why I filed today to run for re-election to Congress."

"I have been humbled by the trust the people of the Third District have placed in me over the past several years to be their voice in Washington. I hope to continue to fight on their behalf for limited government, free markets, and individual liberties, and do everything possible to build on the progress we have made over the past year."
