Norman, Parnell debate trade tariffs

ROCK HILL – Rep. Ralph Norman and challenger Archie Parnell debated trade tariffs Thursday, Sept. 20, days after the Trump administration granted an exemption to a Winnsboro TV maker that will keep it in business and save 126 jobs.
The tariffs were among several policy disagreements at an hour-long forum at the Palmetto Room, sponsored by the Rock Hill Kiwanis Club. It was the first public debate for the 5th District congressional candidates since they ran against each other in a 2017 special election for the seat.
