Tim Scott (left), a South Carolina Republican running for Congress (SC-1), joined Ryan Frazier (right), the Republican candidate for CO-7, at a meet-and-greet before the Labor Day weekend.
Scott defeated the late Sen. Strom Thurmond’s son Paul Thurmond for the GOP nomination in his seat. If Scott or Frazier defeat their respective Democratic foes, either man would be the first black Republican members of Congress to sit in the House in 8 years.
Frazier focused on the national debt and Democratic spending policies in his brief speech:
Frazier continued his offensive following the long weekend, targeting the Democrats’ “Summer of Recover” and stimulus spending, and the support lent to both efforts by his Democratic opponent, Rep. Ed Perlmutter:

Frazier opposes President Barack Obama’s newest proposal, a $50 billion infrastructure plan.
