Republican state Rep. Jenny Horne, of District 94 in Dorchester County, has been endorsed by the group Conservation Voters of South Carolina.
Horne was among various state lawmakers backed by the group but the only local one.
“The candidates we are endorsing support the Conservation Bank because they know that South Carolinians value their natural heritage. Farming, forestry, tourism and outdoor recreation drive our state’s economy,” said Jay James, CVSC board chairman. “These candidates believe conservation and economic development can be parallel paths toward a prosperous future.”
