TRAVELERS REST, SC – Today, Talbert Black Jr., founder of Palmetto Liberty, announced the group’s endorsement of Roy Harmon for State House District 17.

“South Carolina is in serious need of legislators committed to fighting the status quo of overspending, overtaxing, and overregulating,” said Black. “In the race for the 17th District, there is no candidate more committed to limiting government to its core functions than Roy Harmon. If he is elected, the people of northern Greenville can trust Roy to aggressively promote their conservative values in the State House.”

“I am very proud to have Palmetto Liberty’s endorsement,” Harmon said. “It’s an honor to know that they trust me to take conservative reform to Columbia. Voters should know this is a goal I will work tirelessly to reach.”

Harmon added, “I have run a campaign not based on vague promises, but on specific ideas. While I might not have the backing of establishment figures, my pro-life, pro-gun, pro-growth message has resonated with the residents of the 17th District, and I would be honored to have their support.”

Palmetto Liberty was formed to support true conservatives to challenge the establishment. The group seeks to hold South Carolina’s elected officials accountable for their votes. Score cards grading legislators’ voting records can be found at

Roy Harmon is a Greenville native and graduate of Travelers Rest High School. He worked for Congressman Trey Gowdy’s 2010 campaign and for the South Carolina Policy Council’s investigative news project. This is his first time seeking elected office.

The Republican Primary for House District 17 will be held on January 22nd.
