OUR RESOLUTION PASSED!
I am excited to report that our Resolution on Nullification that the JCRP Executive Committee approved in July has been passed by the SCGOP Executive Committee. This resolution addresses the overreach of the federal government on states’ rights and directs Gov. McMaster and AG Alan Wilson to push back against the overreach. It will now be passed on to the So. Carolina Legislature for legislative consideration.

SEPTEMBER MEETING RECAP
Xiaodan Li, Beaufort County Republican Party Executive Committeewoman and election integrity activist, presented an excellent analysis of the ’20 and ’22 election cycles and what we need to do to win in ’24. Here are few takeaways:
– We must reach out to the almost one million eligible South Carolinians who are not registered to vote.
– We must increase voter turnout in Jasper County. Only 5 of 15 precincts matched or surpassed the state average of 63%.
– We must learn to play by the democrats’ rulebook.
