Senator John C. Land, III

Columbia, South Carolina 29201
Dear Senator Land,
Last evening, the Executive Director of your Senate Democratic Caucus, Phil Bailey, made one of the most offensive, bigoted remarks I’ve ever heard. (http://www.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeedpolitics/south-carolina-democrat-labels-haley-sikh-jesus)
In calling Governor Nikki Haley a “Sikh Jesus,” Mr. Bailey has brought shame on our state and offended honorable South Carolinians.
As the highest-ranking Democrat in South Carolina, I call on you, Senator Land, to immediately apologize to South Carolinians and end your party’s relationship with Mr. Bailey.
Failure to take these steps means that you and the Democratic Party endorse such despicable comments.
Chairman, South Carolina Republican Party
