South Carolina’s Top Prosecutor Endorses Parham for 12th Circuit Solicitor
Florence, South Carolina – September 28, 2010 – Former Assistant United States Attorney and Republican 12th Circuit Solicitor candidate, Rose Mary Parham, today received the endorsement of South Carolina Attorney General Henry McMaster.
“Rose Mary Parham has fearlessly and courageously prosecuted the worst of the worst, the dangerous and violent criminals who prey on our families, our businesses and are destroying the very fabric of our community,” said Attorney General McMaster. “She has put herself in the line of fire, not because it was the easy thing to do, but because it was the right thing to do. Her success in taking on gang members, drug dealers and violent criminals is unmatched and I’m convinced she will make the Pee Dee and South Carolina a much safer place as the next solicitor.”
“I’m honored to have Attorney General McMaster’s endorsement and his support,” said Parham. “For the past 8 years, Attorney General McMaster has led the fight on tougher laws for those who commit domestic violence or who prey upon on our children while on the internet. Like Attorney General McMaster, I’ll work with law enforcement to build strong cases to ensure criminals face the maximum penalty while making our neighborhoods and families safe.”
Henry McMaster was elected Attorney General in 2002. He also served under President Reagan as the United States Attorney General for South Carolina. In 1993, McMaster was elected chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party and served four terms through 2002.
Parham brings more than 15 years of experience as a former state and federal prosecutor who has successfully prosecuted murderers, drug dealers, sex offenders, gang members and other violent criminals.
