COLUMBIA, SC – State Representative Bakari Sellers gained national attention today by being named by Politico.com as one of their 2012 "50 politicos to watch."
"This is a great honor," says Sellers. "I am truly humbled to be named alongside giants like Ambassador Susan Rice, Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick and Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa."
Sellers went on to recognize that today's honor would not have been possible if it were not for the faith and support of his family and the citizens of District 90.
"Because of them, I have a unique opportunity to make a true and lasting difference and I will continue to work every single day to make the most of it for the people of District 90 and South Carolina."
