Dear Friend,

I am excited to tell you that our campaign has been endorsed by former Superintendents Mick Zais and Barbara Nielsen! I am grateful to have two of South Carolina’s greatest conservative education leaders on the team. Drs. Nielsen and Zais have been in the trenches.

They know first-hand what it takes to run the State Department of Education and advance education policy that puts students’ needs first.

“Ellen Weaver has my strongest endorsement. She is a proven conservative leader with the intellect, experience, and energy to further empower parents and improve student learning,” said Dr. Zais, who also served as President Trump’s Deputy, then Acting, Secretary of Education.

Dr. Nielsen, South Carolina’s first Republican Superintendent of Education, said, “I have worked closely with Ellen over the years and know how strongly she is committed to moving South Carolina forward. She has the leadership skills, the ability to think creatively, and is not afraid to break the mold to ensure all students and teachers have the best opportunity to succeed.”

As our campaign continues to gain momentum, I want to thank Drs. Nielsen and Zais for their commitment to South Carolina’s future.

To make sure that our message is heard throughout the state, please consider donating to our campaign today – every amount helps!

With supporters like you, we can make sure that every student has the opportunity to succeed, no matter their family’s income level or zip code.

For Faith, Families and Freedom,

Ellen Weaver
Conservative Republican for S.C. Superintendent of Education
