Campaign themes


McCulloch's campaign website highlights the following issues:[2]

Smaller and More Efficient Government

  • Excerpt: "Smaller-more-efficient-govt-Joe Believes: Smaller more efficient government should begin where the laws are made – the state house."

Meaningful Ethics Reform

  • Excerpt: "Joe Believes: Like you, I’m tired of reading about scandals, indictments, and investigations at the state house. We desperately need real, meaningful ethics reform that cleans up the culture of corruption at the General Assembly."

Public Education

  • Excerpt: "Joe Believes: Fully funding public education is a long-term investment in South Carolina’s youth and our state’s future that will reap benefits for decades to come. We need to support our children by equipping them with the tools and training to be successful in the global economy."


  • Excerpt: "Joe Believes: Protecting our air, water, and land is a necessity in our beautiful state and must be one of the legislature’s highest priorities. South Carolina enjoys a thriving tourism and recreation industry – from the coast, through the sandhills, all the way to the mountains."


McCulloch's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[3]

  • Excerpt: "McCulloch supports renewing commitment to education, and on the issue of government's role, he says, "Smaller, cheaper, non-intrusive government are worthy goals, but we still need to keep the lights on, the streets safe, the buses running and on time, and educate our children. We must have government, but it must work."
