Wilkerson: “I saw the work firsthand that Jaime did protecting our jobs here at home.”

Columbia, S.C. — Richard “Dick” Wilkerson, a former top supporter and fundraiser for Sen. Lindsey Graham and past chairman of Greenville-based Michelin North America, spoke in a new ad for Jaime Harrison now airing on both television and digital platforms. In the ad, Wilkerson touts Harrison’s work throughout his career to help create jobs in South Carolina, and pushes back on misleading attack ads from Sen. Lindsey Graham’s campaign. 

The ad can be viewed HERE, and a full transcript of the ad is below:

“I’m Dick Wilkerson. In the past, I supported Lindsey Graham. The political ads run by the Graham group are purposefully misleading. Jaime Harrison has spent a lifetime working for the people of South Carolina. I saw the work firsthand that Jaime did protecting our jobs here at home. Lindsey Graham – I don’t support him today because of the man that he has become. I support Jaime Harrison, because of the man he is.”

Wilkerson endorsed Harrison earlier this year, and penned an op-ed in the Greenville News explaining how Graham has lost his support and why Harrison will be a strong advocate for economic growth in the state.
