BEAUFORT COUNTY, S.C. -- A pastor stood in his robin’s egg-blue shirt and clergy’s collar and Mark Sanford joked that he couldn’t ignore the raised hand of a man of the cloth.
“When do you think we will have health care for all people in this country?” asked Rev. Rick Klotz, of Lord of Life Lutheran Church in Bluffton.
Many in the crowd of more than 150 who crowded the outdoor pavilion at Sun City Hilton Head responded with a standing ovation. Sanford’s eighth town hall this year at the private retirement community Tuesday morning overwhelmingly focused on health care.
The stop was one of several for Sanford in Beaufort County on Tuesday. Events included a gathering for coffee on Hilton Head, lunch at Five Guys and office hours in Beaufort.
