As a single mother, a domestic violence survivor and a civil rights attorney, Annabelle knows firsthand the struggles working families are facing every day in South Carolina.
That’s why, following the 2016 Presidential Election, she started Indivisible South Carolina, one of 6,000+ grassroots organizations launched across America to push back against the radical right-wing agenda threatening our nation. That’s why, working with local and national groups alike, she helped raise the voices of hard-working South Carolinians who, along with millions of Americans, would have been robbed of their health insurance under “Trumpcare.” That’s why she continues to speak out against President Trump’s middle-class tax hike. And that’s why she’s running for Congress.
We’re sick and tired of politicians pretending they care about us while lining their pockets with corporate donations when we’re not looking.
We’re sick and tired of listening to them preach “family values” while protecting pedophiles and domestic abusers.
We’re sick and tired of watching them campaign on “law and order” while dodging investigations and indictments up in Washington and right here in South Carolina.
We’re sick and tired of cleaning up their messes. And it’s time we did something about it.
Annabelle Robertson will fight for us in Washington with a firm commitment to:
- Raising wages for working families
- Rebuilding our roads and bridges
- Closing the “school-to-prison pipeline,” and
- Ensuring quality, affordable health care for all.
This country doesn’t belong to the CEOs and shareholders. It doesn’t belong to the insurance companies or the power companies, the investment bankers and super PACs. It belongs to you.
It belongs to the people…ALL THE PEOPLE. And it’s time we took it back.
It’s time to elect Annabelle Robertson to Congress.
