Today, Christina Jeffrey throws her hat into the ring for the 2010 Race for SC 4th Congressional District.

This is a  surprise entry into the race.  She could end up being a very viable candidate for Inglis’ seat.  The mastermind of Shane Martin’s Senate 13 race, Kerry Wood, will be heavily involved in Jeffrey’s campaign.

The press release is below.


Republican activist, College Professor, Historian of the 104th Congress, and children’s advocate, Christina Jeffrey, will announce her candidacy for Congress tomorrow at 10 AM EST on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

Christina Jeffrey is currently in Washington, DC, attending a Team Sarah meeting (named for Sarah Palin) and the March for Life.  She is taking this occasion to announce her candidacy for Congressional House District 4, representing the Upstate of South Carolina. This seat is currently held by Bob Inglis.

“Dr. Jeffrey is a solid social and fiscal conservative who is dedicated to the principles that brought the Republican Party to power in 1980,” says retired Dorman High School American government and economics teacher, Mark Thompson. “Having worked in many political campaigns, she brings a wealth of experience. For the past 7 years, she has been Secretary of the Spartanburg County Republican Party; I do believe she will do an outstanding job.”

Asked to sum up her reason for running against Mr. Inglis, Dr. Jeffrey said this:
……. “Bob Inglis is symbolic of the path many Republicans have taken over the past few years as he has continued to compromise our conservative values. He is sadly out of touch with his constituents.  Times have changed, but the principles that brought the Republican Party to power in 1980 are the principles held by the majority of his constituents and the principles that we must have in the nation’s capital.”

A deep knowledge of international trade and public policy, especially with respect to economic issues, makes her uniquely qualified to serve in these troubling times. She understands the many challenges facing our country both at home and around the world. Her teaching assignments have taken her to Germany and Turkey, and subsequently to Kennesaw State University in Georgia, and a tenured position as Associate Professor of Political Science. A decade ago, she relocated with her family to South Carolina, home to her parents and brothers, and currently teaches Foundations of American Government at Wofford College.
