Scorecards

The Palmetto Liberty PAC Scorecard

See also: The Palmetto Liberty Political Action Committee's Legislative Score Card

The Palmetto Liberty Political Action Committee, a conservative pro-limited government think tank in South Carolina, releases its Scorecard for South Carolina Representatives and Senators once a year. The Scorecard gives each a legislator a score based on how they voted in the two-year legislative term prior to the election on specific issues which the Palametto Liberty PAC thought were anti-limited government. "Most of the votes shown on the score card are votes that we lost. Now we can identify the Legislators that caused us to lose these votes. These Legislators are the ones who need to be replaced if we are to achieve the vision of having the most free state in the nation."[8]

2012

Nelson Hardwick received a score of 27% in the 2012 scorecard, ranking 31st out of all 124 South Carolina House of Representatives members.[9] His score was followed by representatives Phyllis Henderson (27%), Davey Hiott (27%), and Bill Hixon (27%).[10]
