Columbia, South Carolina. – South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Drew McKissick released the following statement regarding the Tega Cay Police Memorial:

“I was appalled to see the City of Tega Cay originally cave into radical liberals who use the threat of lawsuits to wipe out religious expressions from American public life. Simply put, the Supreme Court continues to affirm that these displays are completely constitutional. Not only should the monument not have been changed or removed, it should never have been controversial in the first place."
