S.C. Sen. Larry Grooms will receive the support of a Columbia, S.C.-based political action committee as he seeks the GOP nod in South Carolina’s first congressional district.
Grooms’ bid will be aided by the “Palmetto Conservatives Fund,” an entity which filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) earlier this week.
The new group is led by Dave Wilson, a Columbia-based political operative in the stable of veteran GOP strategist Bob McAlister.
Obviously “Palmetto Conservatives Fund” won’t be the only third party organization involved in the first district primary election – scheduled for March 19. Former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford and Charleston businessman Teddy Turner are also reportedly in line to receive support from political action committees.
