Meet Maj. James Capers

Please join me on Wednesday, April 12th as we meet and hear from Maj.

Capers for acts of valor during the Vietnam War. As the recipient of a Silver Star, two Bronze Stars with “V” for…

Remarks at CPAC

It was an honor be part of a special forum this morning at CPAC with Rep. Scott Perry, where we covered a wide variety of important issues facing Congress. The weaponization of government, border security, the Speaker's election, China, and more... nothing was off limits. Give a listen!

Tonight's State of the Union Address

| Posted in Blog

I’m not expecting much from the State of the Union address tonight. We’ll hear a lot of platitudes and cherry-picked statistics, but nothing meaningful in terms of policy or vision. If you’re inclined to tune in to President Biden’s remarks tonight, I’d invite you to keep these facts in the back of your mind: ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION: 4.5 million people have illegally crossed our southern…

Commitment to America

| Posted in Blog

I get a lot of questions about what Republicans will do next year when we take back control of the House of Representatives. These are important questions. After all, we can talk forever about spiraling inflation, record illegal immigration, rising violent crime, foreign policy disasters, fentanyl crisis, “woke” education programs, out of control government bureaucracies, etc. But it’s…

A Great Day for South Carolina Veterans

| Posted in Blog

It's a great day for South Carolina veterans! In just a moment, Governor Henry McMaster is expected to sign the Workforce Enhancement and Military Recognition Act into state law. This will exempt the retirement income of our military veterans from state taxes. Back in February, I led a joint statement in support of this effort with every member of the South Carolina delegation to…

What’s Your Solution, Ralph?

| Posted in Blog

“What’s your solution, Ralph?” I get that question all the time, especially when I talk about wasteful spending in Congress and our $30 trillion in federal debt. Friends, our nation is heading for financial ruin. I’m so tired of being asked to vote “yes” on new spending bills with no offsets. I’m tired of bloated, wasteful government. I’m tired of agency heads who claim they can't do…

78 Years Later

2,501 American soldiers gave their lives along the beachheads of Normandy on June 6, 1944. Thousands more were injured.   D-Day was a monumental effort to help defeat Nazi Germany and end WWII. 78 years later, we still honor and remember their incredible sacrifice.

Memorial Day 2022

We think of most holidays as times of celebration – as joyful occasions. But this one is not. Memorial Day is a day of reverence. It's a day of honor and respect. It's a day we reflect and pay tribute those who have laid down their lives in service to this great nation. And it's a day we thank God for each one of those brave men and women.
