Greenville County is a thriving, diverse area and it deserves a responsive government. Republicans have governed for generations and the results are clear: Our state is at the bottom of all the lists we want to be high on, and at the top of all the rankings we want to be low on. To get better results and to meet the times we are in, we must elect more Democrats. That’s our mission. Be all in with us. Learn more and donate to our 2020 Campaign.
