President Trump Receives Endorsements from 15 Current and Former South Carolina Sheriffs

February 20, 2024

Trump Campaign Reaches 182 total endorsements in South Carolina 


North Charleston, SC Today, President Donald J. Trump announced that 15 current and former South Carolina sheriffs are endorsing his campaign for the presidency. In total, President Trump has received 182 endorsements from South Carolina’s staunchest conservative leaders, along with more than 250 Grassroots Leaders who announced their support last June. 


“After three years and millions of illegal aliens and countless deadly drugs smuggled into the United States, South Carolinians need a strong and steady Commander in Chief,” said Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright. “As the only Law and Order candidate running for president, President Trump has the unique experience and bold leadership to protect our families and communities. He secured our border once before, and he will do it once again.” 


“We saw brazen lawlessness erupt right here in Charleston in 2020, and security at home requires fearless leaders like President Trump, not weak-kneed politicians like Nikki Haley who kowtows to her globalist Democrat donors,” said former Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon. “President Trump is headed for a historic win in South Carolina, and it’s time for Nikki Haley to step aside and unite behind the only candidate who will defeat Joe Biden and restore our nation in November.”
