This release came in a few minutes ago. I refer, of course, to the headline:

For Immediate Release
January 9th, 2018
“There is nothing more important than our children’s health and education, but the Governor and Speaker are choosing to play politics with their safety instead of working with Democrats.” – SCDP Chairman Trav Robertson
Columbia, SC — At 2 PM this afternoon, South Carolina Speaker Jay Lucas will bring up a vote to override Governor Henry McMaster’s Veto 15 from the budget regarding school bus funding – money that is desperately needed to reinforce our aging fleet across the state – even though he does not have enough Republican votes to override the veto and he knows it:
“The Speaker is rushing to get it off of his plate because he doesn’t like the optics of having Republicans willfully endanger our children,” said South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Trav Robertson. “The truth is that the Speaker is putting South Carolina’s children in danger because Republicans refuse to work with Democrats to get them out of this terrible situation the Governor has put us in. Both Speaker Lucas and Governor McMaster would rather have our children suffer than work with Democrats. The people of South Carolina have to live with the consequences of this series of political stunts by the Republicans.”

Yep, we gotta do something about all that smoochin’ going on in our public schools…

    Oops, they did it again:

    “Today, the Governor and Speaker have chosen to play politics with the safety of our children and needed Democratic votes to override the Governor’s veto of school busses.” – SCDP Chairman Trav Robertson

    Columbia, SC — Today in the SC House, Democrats saved their colleagues by choosing to override Henry McMaster’s veto of more than $17.5 million for school busses in the state.

    “There is nothing more important than the safety of our children. It has been clear for quite a while that our fleet of school busses in this state is in need of serious investment, repair, and replacement, underscored by recent fires that have threatened the lives of students,” said South Carolina Democratic Party Chairman Trav Robertson. “The Governor’s veto was heartless and proved he has no Christian values, while it was Democratic votes in the House that ensured this money will protect our children.”

      I’d link you to the releases, but the SC Democratic Party hasn’t posted any of its press releases since early September.

      I can’t imagine why. It puzzles me when people fail to keep up that way. The “hard” (relatively) part is writing the release and sending it out on the eblast. Adding it to a website just take another minute, probably less…
