The leader of the National Committee to Preserve Social Security and Medicare will travel from Washington, D.C., to Charleston Thursday to endorse Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch in her run for the 1st Congressional District seat.
"Seniors and other Social Security and Medicare beneficiaries in South Carolina need a representative who will protect the benefits they've earned over a lifetime of work," said Max Richtman, president and CEO of the National Committee, a membership organization. "Elizabeth Colbert Busch will protect those benefits against any political or corporate interests that would diminish them through harmful cuts or other risky proposals such as privatization."
