CANDIDATE LOOKS TO SWAY VOTERS AWAY FROM LINDSEY GRAHAM
Independent U.S. Senate candidate Thomas Ravenel will be in Greenville, S.C. this week – addressing a gathering of the Greenville Tea Party.
Ravenel – star of Bravo TV’s Southern Charm reality television show – is running for the Senate seat against “Republican” Lindsey Graham, Democrat Brad Hutto (a State Senator from Orangeburg, S.C.) and Libertarian Victor Kocher.
Graham has held the seat since 2003, veering wildly to the left in recent years. In 2009, for example, he was the only Republican in the entire U.S. Congress to support an energy tax hike backed by Barack Obama. He was also one of only four “Republican” U.S. Senators to vote in favor of both of Obama’s liberal nominees to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Thursday’s meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. EDT at Zen in downtown Greenville (924 South Main Street). The meeting is open to the public, and admission is free.
The Greenville Tea Party touts itself as “a grassroots conservative assembly,” an organization that “promotes adherence to the Constitution and the South Carolina Republican Party platform.”
