Correction: Senate 22 Voter Communications

CORRECTION: As part of our support for Rep. Ivory Thigpen for Senate, CVSC PAC shared campaign materials with voters in Senate District 22, which stated Rep. Ivory Thigpen is the only African American in House leadership. This statement is incorrect, and we apologize for the error. The statement was intended to highlight that Rep. Thigpen is Chairman of the Legislative Black Caucus, a separate nonprofit entity from the SC House. This was not conveyed clearly through our communication. In addition, there are a number of Black lawmakers serving in various leadership positions in the SC House, including Vice Chairs and Second Vice Chairs of committees, Chairs of subcommittees, and leadership roles within the Democratic Caucus. We apologize for our mistake, for any confusion that it may have caused voters in Senate District 22, for not fully acknowledging the variety of leadership roles that are held by Black lawmakers, and for the harm that this lack of acknowledgment may have caused to Black lawmakers and others.
