Lieutenant Colonel, Board Certified Family Nurse Practitioner, and Board Certified Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner Sheri Biggs Announces Candidacy for South Carolina’s Third Congressional District
ANDERSON – Sheri Biggs – a lieutenant colonel in the Air National Guard, a board certified family nurse practitioner, a board certified psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, Salem resident, and a pro-life, pro-Second Amendment lifelong Republican – announced she is running to serve South Carolina’s Third Congressional District, a position currently held by Congressman Jeff Duncan. Duncan announced yesterday that he is not seeking re-election this year.
In an election announcement video entitled “Healing Our Nation” posted to her website, www.SheriBiggs.com, Biggs details her lifetime of service in the health care industry with an emphasis on veteran and first responder care, her multiple combat missions, her strong Christian faith, and her commitment to help heal the nation by standing for conservative principles in Congress.
“Our nation is struggling and Washington is broken because it has a health problem – mental, fiscal, and spiritual,” said Biggs. “I’m running for Congress to continue my lifetime of service and treat Washington’s health problem with truth-seeking servant leadership – not power-seeking politics as usual.
While there are many challenges before us today, I have unwavering faith that America remains a land of resilience, dreams, and belief in the Almighty God, and can be healed from the troubles of the day with more of the bold, conservative, servant leadership I offer. While I humbly ask my neighbors for their support and vote, I also ask for their prayers for our campaign and more importantly for our nation.”
Sheri has been a vocal strong supporter of President Donald Trump. Biggs said, "I believe that President Trump has shown he has the ability and resilience to Make America Great Again!"
