Making four million dollars lobbying. While you also are a member of the legislature. And GM that is against the law by the way. Then yeah you can now pretty much you count on. Getting off when they slap on the wrist or less 21 after three year in the Bobby Mack shows I mention it's about becoming more crowded field. In the on the GOP side. With the the announcement today that a John Warren who is a founder and chairman of Lima 01 capital. Headquartered here in Greeneville he has a conservative and marine veteran. Officially today announced his candidacy for governor John welcome to the program. Thank arm out of here and tell me a little bit about yourself to. Well I think you can find me by then and I'm a conservative I'm a certain man and I'm mirnyi and not put it in Colombia needs. I grew up in green ball. Couldn't currently taught me god had a plan highlights. Grew up very patriotic and might and shortly after college joined the Marine Corps after 9/11 could that help call you back. What about 300 missions combat missions and I would act and we want them out I started Lima one capital and when one of the market wonders. In the entire country and I'm very proud of the fact that they'll accompanied the group without bail on. When now when you and hear the news that that I guess relayed to the audience down about. Our Greg Quinn and getting off with a slap on the wrist while. And I it as a member of the legislature all lobbying at the same time and pocketing some four million bucks on the way. This to me is it is another. Exemplar. Of we're not corruption that exists in Columbia. Catherine tumbled and has railed against this for some time and I understand that you also are out. Interest Indian in fighting the egg the good old boy system that exist in the state capital. Well I mean I am totally good doctored by the it does become. What we've come to expect from politicians down in Columbia that. You know. Based on my experience in the Marine Corps NN business you know leadership comes down pretty. Come down that to recount comes down a person's core values. What they believe and who they are their core it is what their core competencies dark. And do they have courage to do it right and right now. We need change in leadership down in Columbia someone that could that it conservative core values. And apply to business principles. To help that taxpayer look at right now we have politicians down in Columbia. Speech the also the South Carolina. And sadly many of memory and leadership roles down their I'm sure you're aware John. Other limitations of the office of governor constitutionally. Here in South Carolina. Specifically how can you go about. Rooting out the corruption that exist down there. Well I think to begin with you gotta be able Adobe. Got it spent some of the let it go all summer and you're also. But back in South Carolina. It's going to be a hot 100% pick it up. They are hired a happy and your taxpayer dollars squandered. They're hired truly politician. Columbia I'll talk a lot of rest and I'll work he's. Our tails off to order. So. I contend that went South Carolina on my ears at the legislator legislatures and give them my well. We're talking went John Warren museum the newest Canada to knew his name in the field. A running for governor on the on the GOP side John I'm that you are you are entering the race as still plenty of time before the primaries coming up and the spraying. Ahmed a somewhat the late entry compared to say that the answer may Gilles or Katharine Templeton east who have been in the race for some time. You. You know about that when I came on the island urban here the number he's not that. And what I am not. It their career politician. I am not a government and Carter and that's what South Carolina want. I hear more and more and more I just being on the campaign trail wonder if people want other options they want. Problem solvers. Who can apply basic business common sense aren't close to our government got in Columbia matte black. I built and maybe he would have a great ground game out strong fundraising. And my wife and are committed to love. Supporting the campaign financially as well we will we will hear very warm hormonal or vote for everyone else. You be obviously from what you just said John recognize that as the old saying goes money is any mother's milk of politics. I'd be he'll be a little bit right weight to the and to fund raising campaign as well. But you still feel as if there's there's enough. Campaign dollars out there to be able to make your candidacy viable. I think one is that I will have a financial. Campaign lately capital the other thing they're. I've actually been successful in the private sector and I'm gonna be able to contribute to my. Campaign unlike everyone I'll partners who race. Just relied on special interest groups lot of outside money. So we're not worried about our financial situation. Alan that's reminiscent now of another guy who ran recently for office using a substantial portion of his own money was outspent 41. And yet managed to win the White House and that of course is Donald Trump. Gupta I mean that's a great example. I think well. You'll definitely committed when you're not you'll have the money it. Can we talk specifics on a couple of issues and I quickly down because I am I not had an opportunity yet to visit your website and see what your positions are on on a few issues. A lot of people have complained about the gas tax. And and and how it's going to be never ending. Would you be in favor of a repeal of the gas tax legislation passed last year in the legislature. The absolutely be first thing I would like to do it do. And we need to look at all the government agencies starting with DOT. The fact that armored. Are the second most expensive in terms of building them in the entire country is utterly ridiculous. I think it's driven by special interest. We need to or form DOT. And we need to protect the taxpayer not at the expense not. Structure you can do those and acting argument. From both sides are from one side as either accept. Or you won't have good order and I don't expect. Damn I don't believe that was an accurate portrayal of those other circumstances either in the news recently John has been the of the uproar over the nuclear plant failures downstate that are gonna cost people that. Our in many of the electrical co ops continuing dollars. Apparently in perpetuity and this is. This has been a disaster that was caused by the legislature. Your feelings about what's happened what's transpired so far and where we go from here. I think that is in the greater example of how in copper and our state government has. Are the first thing I would do and I have not heard unique solutions come any of the candidates running my policy is the first thing that needs to be done. Is we need to fire that seem to cook report per total incompetence and gross negligence. Why they oversaw. Wasteful taxpayer dollars of four billion dollars just up in smoke. And then on top of that they allow their CEO to hire. Reap higher after leading four billion dollars and get an 800000 dollar pension yeah nice little golden state highway robbery. The second thing we needed duke weenie. It actually knows what they're doing if you look at the board there are only two members. The anti troop report it actually had unique energy experience. That is just. Incredible country the third thing we need to do we need to bring in an outstanding. Investment banks who can tell what is work. In reading master key talent we we got to sell. I mean I think he expect that the put up port sale by owner sign in the front yard this. Crude into it the kind of money that's not accurate we need to find out what its work. Did we need to do a forensic ought to that he really what transpires. That anti trooper. Where document that John warned he's the latest to announcing he is a candidate for governor on the Republican ticket if you'd like to learn more about him his website is a war and the WA RRE and Warren for governor.
