The Journal Endorses Jeff Duncan (Cand, SC03)

Duncan for South Carolina’s 3rd District

by The Journal

The Journal gives its endorsement to Jeff Duncan in the Republican primary race for the 3rd Congressional District, U.S. House of Representatives. Duncan is running in a crowded field of candidates, but he has distinguished himself in the S.C. House since 2002 as a leader with the vision to represent South Carolina’s 3rd District in Washington. Now, more than any time in many decades, men and women of vision and integrity are needed in the halls of Congress. Duncan can be a voice to help direct the United States back toward the course of fiscal conservatism, limited government and strength and respect in the world.

Organizations such as the National Federation of Independent Businesses and the Club for Growth do not bestow their praise on legislators without much research and deliberation. Duncan has won accolades from both, receiving an A+ rating from the Club for Growth and the Guardian of Small Business Award from the NFIB.

An avid interest in the appropriate conservation of South Carolina’s wildlife and natural resources led Duncan first to membership and then the chairmanship of the S.C. House’s Agriculture, Natural Resources and Environmental Affairs Committee. He received the South Carolina Wildlife Federation’s Legislator of the Year Award in 2007 for his work in that area.

Duncan’s roots run deep in the 3rd District, giving him uncommon perspective on the issues that face everyday people and businesses. He is the president and CEO of his own company, J. Duncan Associates, a real estate marketing firm specializing in real estate auctions. His travels dealing with people in the midst hard times and others who are thriving gives him a unique perspective among the 3rd District candidates about what Washington should and should not do to help South Carolina and the nation back to full economic health.

Perhaps Duncan’s most striking qualification is a very simple one: he carries a copy of the U.S. Constitution in his pocket at all times. South Carolina deserves a representative who holds that document dear. We recommend him to you.
