Today, Republican Congressman Joe Wilson endorsed Major General Bob Livingston in his run to become the next Adjutant General of South Carolina.  The press conference took place at the South Carolina Republican Party Headquarters. Wilson’s endorsement follows the endorsement of current Adjutant General Stanhope Spears.

“General Livingston and I served in the Guard together; I visited him and the 218th every 3 months in Afghanistan. I have seen him demonstrate incredible leadership and judgment leading our troops. He is unquestionably uniquely qualified to be the next Adjutant General.”, said Wilson.

General Livingston went on to say, “This endorsement signifies that we are dedicated to taking care of our soldiers at home and abroad, as well as emphasizing quality family support at home.”

Today’s press conference is the most recent indication of Livingston’s broad base of support from National Guard members and the GOP establishment and grassroots communities. These factors, coupled with his substantial war chest makes him the clear front-runner for the GOP nomination.

Major General Bob Livingston is the President and CEO of Gregory Electric Co. In Afghanistan, he led South Carolina’s 218th Brigade and troops from 18 different coalition nations. Livingston currently serves on General Patraeus’ staff at Central Command.
