Watch remarks by Congressman Clyburn, Congressman Wilson, and Congressman Norman here.

Congressman Wilson’s remarks as prepared for delivery:

Mr. Speaker,

It is a great honor to be here tonight with Congressman Clyburn on a very extraordinary evening—to me it is a dream come true. Eleven years ago, my wife and I had the opportunity to campaign across the Fifth Congressional District by bus. As we traveled the district with Ralph and Elaine Norman, I found out that his business background gives him the basis to understand how to create jobs. I saw his affection for our veterans and understanding of the importance of a strong national defense. It was so inspiring to also be with their four grown children, who are each so successful.

For the past seven years, I’m really grateful he’s been a floor leader for Governor Nikki Haley, now our Ambassador to the United Nations where he has advocated for limited government and expanded freedom. It is with great honor that I introduce to you and yield to Congressman Ralph Norman.
