Last Night’s House Seat 14 Debate

Yesterday evening, the Government Affairs Committee of The Laurens County Chamber of Commerce hosted a debate between Rep. Mike Pitts, the republican incumbent and Dr. Ed Taylor, the democratic candidate for SC House Seat 14 at the Hillcrest Square Courthouse. Questions were asked by a panel of local media. The last question of the evening concerned both candidates strengths in concern to serving in the house of representatives.

Dr. Taylor’s response: Dr. Taylor

Rep. Pitts’ response: Rep. Pitts

Other questions covered topics of taxes, agriculture and education. The responses from the candidates were longer and more in depth and this reporter feels it would be unfair to simply pick soundbytes for our news broadcasts. The debate in its entirety, will be aired on WLBG this coming Monday evening just after our 5:00 news broadcast. Join us at that time for the entire debate.
