Fletcher Smith."I've had several members of my family, from my grandfather down to two of my siblings, serve proudly in our nation's military so it's especially important to me that we end this war in a way that keeps our troops safe and does not require us to send them back in the months or years ahead.I believe that only by adopting Biden's comprehensive plan for a federalized Iraq will we truly be able to do this and reduce the overall threat to our country."

Fletcher Smith is facing a rare and spirited renomination challenge from Greenville City Council member Chandra Dillard in House District 23.
...
Smith is a Greenville attorney who hasn't had primary or general election opposition since 2000 when he defeated Republican Lawrence Acker by a more than two-to-one margin in the solidly Democratic district.
The winner of the June 10 Smith-Dillard primary will face Republican Justin Alexander in the Nov. 4 general election.
Smith says he's offering voters his experience and record in promoting initiatives in education, economic development and affordable health care.He is vice chairman of Greenville County's legislative delegation, the General Assembly's biggest, and is a member of the House Judiciary Committee and the Judicial Merit Selection Commission, the body that vets prospective judges.
In the current session, Smith has raised questions about racial profiling amid a number of incidents involving the state Highway Patrol and has pushed a bill that would allow military service personnel ages 18-20 to buy alcoholic beverages.The bill remains in committee.
Dillard says Smith isn't tending to legislative business.
...
In announcing the endorsement, CVSC Executive Director Ann Timberlake said, "The choice was clear given Chandra Dillard's commitment to our natural resources while serving on Greenville City Council and Fletcher Smith's consistent non-voting record which has earned him a zero on our annual environmental scorecard.
...
"Absurd," Smith said in reference to Dillard's claim on Smith's voting record.
He said Dillard's contention ignores the House's numerous voice votes and his role on the Judicial Merit Selection Commission."When I'm sitting there, I can't take a vote," Smith said, noting his role in the selection of a number of Upstate jurists, including Appeals Court Judges John Kitteridge and Aphrodite Konduras and Supreme Court justice Donald Beatty, only the second black justice since Reconstruction.
...
As a practicing attorney, Smith said he has on occasion missed votes because he had to be in court.
Smith said he didn't mind not getting the conservationists' endorsement.
"I told them a long time ago that I'm not for radical environmentalism, that when they come in and try to devalue the property of black and poor white landowners in rural areas by keeping them from selling their property at fair market values, I'm against that.As a result, I supported a strong property rights bill and I'm a member of a group of environmentalists that believe in not only protecting the environment but protecting our small businesses from the radical environmentalists," Smith said.
Smith, a 10-year legislative veteran, said "even if (Dillard) shows up in Columbia every day as a freshman, she'll have no influence whatsoever.
...
State Ethics Commission reports show Smith has raised $2,500 and had $2,300 in available cash as of April 10.
...
Donating to Smith were, Fulton & Barr Law Firm of Greenville, $500; Randolph McKetty & Associates of Greer, $250; Cathryn Stevens of Greenville, $80; and Dillard, $20.

Fletcher Smith, who was co-chairman of Richardson's South Carolina campaign, cited Richardson's stance on the Iraq war. Richardson plan is to withdraw the troops immediately. Smith said Biden's plan to divide Iraq into three regions makes more sense. "To me it's the only way this problem is going to be resolved," Smith said in a interview. "Right now we have a quicksand of a civil war, and I don't believe we can just pull out precipitously in a six month period of time without jeopardizing our interests in the region. We don't need another evacuation that we had in Vietnam. Smith now endorses Biden saying, "He is the man at the right time, with the right approach, to lead our nation out of this morass. Smith is a member of the South Carolina Legislative Black Caucus, and has been on Richardson's team since July. Smith also said he liked Biden because he is Irish-American. Smith said, "Irish-Americans faced the same problems African-Americans have faced in this country.
