Gillespie Kicks Off Congressional Campaign: Former Public School Teacher Unveils Spratt Report Card

CLOVER - Republican congressional candidate Park Gillespie kicked off his campaign to unseat Congressman John Spratt (D-SC) in a bus tour across the district yesterday.

Visiting a number of cities and towns in the Fifth District, including Gaffney, Chester, Camden, Sumter and Rock Hill, Gillespie reminded voters that "it's only going to be one year until John Spratt comes home from Washington, DC for good."

A veteran public school teacher, Gillespie unveiled John Spratt's report card which consistently earned him an "F" from a number of organizations including the Concord Coalition, Citizens Against Government Waste, the National Rifle Association, the U.S. Association of Manufacturers, National
Right to Life and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Spratt's passing grades came from the liberal National Education Association and the American Bar Association. Gillespie stated, "The time has come for John Spratt to represent the values of the people of the Fifth Congressional District. He can no longer continue to say one thing in South Carolina and
do another in Washington, DC."

The bus tour culminated at the National Guard Armory in Rock Hill where Gillespie was greeted by well over 200 supporters from the area. The Flowers Family Band provided bluegrass music for supporters.
