UPSTATE, SC – On April 2, Andrew Smart, President and CEO of Duke Sandwich Company, will announce his decision to run for US Congress.  Smart will make this speech on the seventh anniversary of his father’s tragic passing,
dedicating his Congressional announcement to his father’s memory.

“On this day seven years ago, I had to grow up quickly, taking a leadership role in the family business – one that has prospered for over ninety years.”

In discussing this race, Andrew stated, “It’s time for a new generation of conservative leadership.  With the economic turmoil facing our state and country, let’s elect more leaders who have met a payroll and understand how important
small business is to our nation.  I will go to Washington to be a servant, not to be served.  My office will focus on economic solutions, healthcare strategies, and excellence in education, undergirded by true conservative values.”

Andrew will travel across the 4th district, announcing his candidacy first in Greenville, then meeting with supporters in Spartanburg and Union counties.
