Leaders from across South Carolina endorse businessman, Marine Warren

GREENVILLE, SC – More than 40 grassroots conservative leaders from throughout South Carolina publicly endorsed conservative John Warren for governor. Warren, a founder and chairman of Lima One Capital, has previously released Veterans for Warren and Business Leaders for Warren coalitions.

I am proud to stand with these conservative leaders,” said Warren. “As a true conservative outsider, I am committed to bring real reform to Columbia.

After serving in the United States Marine Corp, Warren founded Lima One Capital in 2010. Headquartered in Greenville, Lima One has been named one of the fastest-growing companies in South Carolina with 80 full-time employees and 250 contract employees. Lima One has also been named one of South Carolina’s “Most Ethical Companies.”

John is a conservative that we can trust to get the job done,” said Patrick Haddon, Greenville businessman and former chairman of the Greenville County Republican Party. We need a conservative who is true to his word, who stands on principle and who is one of us. That is John Warren.

Jill Holt, a Nikki Haley-appointed SCETV Commissioner and conservative activist added, “We have enough career politicians who make promises they can’t keep. John is the true conservative outsider with a plan to end corruption in Columbia and bring accountability to state government.
