Soil Loser Runs Again!

Christina Jeffrey

Perennial candidate, Christina Jeffrey, is running for another elected seat.

Apparently, she has not learned that Spartanburg county republican voters don’t care for her too much.  And if they don’t like her, I don’t see how she can convince the additional democrats to support her.

Jeffrey lost a state house primary in 2008 (won by Derham Cole Jr.) and finished last in the 4th Congressional primary in June 2010 (won by Trey Gowdy), garnering only 5% of the vote.

This is also the same Christina Jeffrey who lied about who she voted for in the 2008 presidential primary while running for Congress.  That’s her.  And luckily for her, South Carolina’s sore loser laws do not apply in this case.

More about soil – err – sore loser laws a little later.

Jeffrey is seeking a seat on the Soil and Water Conservation board in Spartanburg County.

According to Jeffrey’s communication seeking supporters, she claims she was asked to consider running by Spartanburg GOP Chairmwoman, LaDonna Ryggs.  And then following a staple of her congressional campaign, begins with the fear mongering concerning the United Nations.

“Even though this board has not been very active, we don’t want it to start pushing any U.N. inspired projects – best to have good conservatives in place”

Although the U.N. poses a large risk to the American public, I really hope this race does not turn into a U.N. squabble.

SC Sore Loser Laws
Basically, this law prevents a person from running for the same seat in the general election that they lost in the most recent primary.  It does not apply to non-partisan elections, therefore Jeffrey can run for this seat in the same election cycle.
