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.”

FYI. each bathroom stall will lock in the bathrooms for all there to get the free 8 balls to the first 100 in attendance

T-Rav will be running his mouth in a bar… And in other news, water is still wet and Will’s bromance is still running strong. I wonder if T-Rav will talk about the importance of two parent families and staying away from drugs.

Philip Branton August 14, 2014 at 11:27 am

LOL…..yep, just like Graham had to have a curtain put up at the Citadel to cover up the “empty” backdrop and then most all of the attendees were Citadel students who were “asked” to be there…!!! No body asking questions asked about …OIL…!!

SCBlues August 14, 2014 at 12:36 pm

” I wonder if T-Rav will talk about the importance of two parent families and staying away from drugs.”
If his tombstone states in twelve inch letters “I snorted Coke and got caught” would that satisfy you.
I favor two parent families myself – that is why I support marriage equality.

The Colonel August 14, 2014 at 3:46 pm

The only action Ravenel could take that would “satisfy” me would be for him to slink back into obscurity.
By the way he plead guilty to “conspiring to buy and distribute cocaine”, it wasn’t just his hoover nose that got him in trouble – it was the issue of distribution that really got his butt in trouble, He had a half a kilo of coke (roughly a pound) on him when he was caught worth $25-30,000.

Graham gonna get it rammed up his ass so hard and so far, it will come out of his ears and yours.

“Ravenel – star of Bravo TV’s Southern Charm reality television show –”…did you omit convicted felon by mistake?

RogueElephant August 14, 2014 at 11:34 am

How about convicted felon that has paid his debt to society, seen the error of his ways and is attempting to start a new life with lots of experience ? Can you say T Rav 2.0 ???

idcydm August 14, 2014 at 2:02 pm

Vote for him if you want, I gave him a chance once and he screwed it up. First time shame on him second time shame on me.

Mike at the Beach August 15, 2014 at 2:07 am

Two or three chances, actually. At some point one should cut their losses and move on.

Mike at the Beach August 15, 2014 at 12:13 am

Seen the error of his ways?! Where did you read that? Not a single ounce of contrition for any of his madness; just lies, deceit, and ego. Renounced his citizenship, then denied that he was serious (called it “satire,” which I guess is his word for “inconvenient”). Initially said, “Sorry!” about the coke bust, then changed his tune to, “I didn’t do anything wrong- dope should be legal.” Denied he was drunk, then slinked up and plead guilty to the DUI (without the press spin that he used after the arrest, of course). Experience?! In what, pulling the silver spoon from his mouth to his nose? Did he work in the Peace Corps and I missed it? Serve in the armed forces? Run some big charitable foundation to help those in need? Run some large organization somewhere? Republicans don’t begrudge anyone making a buck, but let’s not spin a spoiled rich guy who’s cashed in on his name and connections to make money developing real estate into someone with valuable “experience” we can’t do without. Hate on LG all you like, but that intense dislike doesn’t make TR anything but what he is. The vast majority of the voting public sees him exactly as he is, and he’s getting ready to learn that the hard way.

great a room full of loooooooooooooosers. Lee “not very” Bright will serve as the MC for the event.

Sandi Morals August 14, 2014 at 8:51 am

Ravenel appears to have more character than this guy…

“After his surprise filing Saturday, Ervin is self-financing his run at first. Ervin said he has cashed out his 401(k) and IRA to pay for the race and put $108,000 into his coffers. He said he’s looking for donors.” (how does a successful, self-identified attorney/former Judge apparently only have $108,000, at age 62, in his 401k and IRA? ?)

Read more here:

How does Ervin’s “$108,000” turn into, “Ervin, a Greenville attorney and radio-station owner, will have laid out as much money — $3.5 million”?

Ervin said he was ‘looking for donors”???? He better look harder.Thru June , according to “thestate”, he had only raised $62,000 from donors-and one would assume why he is polling at 2-3%.

RogueElephant August 14, 2014 at 11:30 am

Judging from the financial news above , he must not catch very many ambulances. LOL

Sandi Morals August 14, 2014 at 3:54 pm

Lol… got it Rogue…:-)

Clarendonian August 14, 2014 at 8:56 am

“veering wildly to the left.” LMAO! Graham is at worst right where he was when first elected. At best (loosely speaking), he’s further right where the rest of the Republican electorate is.

None-the-less, he’s going to spank every opponent’s ass.

Captain Narcissisus Irrelevance addresses a platoon sized group of voters. That’s some big news right there.

mark August 14, 2014 at 10:29 am

Hey man, we all make mistakes. Make bad judgement calls. T did his time for his. W Folks made a bad judgement call when he messed with that little Bamberger, but he’s still worth his weight in gold. Let it go, and vote T-Rav.

Ha August 14, 2014 at 12:34 pm

Shut up Simran.

Graham Is Disconnected From SC August 14, 2014 at 10:31 am

Pro Amnesty and Pro Illegal Lindsey Punk Butt Graham was censured in that part of the state.

Republican Senator Sessions Warns of ‘Chilling’ Obama Immigration Plotting. Warned his colleagues in Congress that Americans will vote them out of office in November if they do not act to thwart President Barack Obama’s plans to grant work permits and amnesty to up to eight million more Americans via executive fiat.

Graham Is Disconnected From SC August 14, 2014 at 10:33 am

I’m getting behind T Rav. Seen enough of Grahams horseshit war mongering and his hugging of illegal aliens who cheat, lie, steal, rob, commit crimes – like he does.
Hutto is too creepy.

& you dont even live here August 14, 2014 at 2:06 pm

you don’t even live in this state troll. now go snort one of T Rav’s lines he sold you a jabber away endlessly on another site for a while

FU Private August 14, 2014 at 2:08 pm

Shut up dumbass. Unless you want your name broadcasted across the internet.

Old Ball Sack August 14, 2014 at 10:46 am

Cute picture of T-Rav with his granddaughter.

Word On The Street August 14, 2014 at 10:54 am

If Ravenel plays his cards right with all the bullets Graham has given out, Graham will get smeared. People on the streets of South Carolina, voters are more concerned about the state of the state – illegals running it over – the poverty in the state – the drop in hourly wages – the abuse of federal dollars – and, in part, why hasn’t Graham done anything whatsoever to build South Carolina up and make it better. Ask people on the streets of Columbia and you will find out. They think Graham is doing nothing to make the USA a better place.
And people wonder why Graham has been censured by several counties in South Carolina? Two of them are the most populated, too. Word has it, that Graham’s head is spinning around in worry he will lose the election. T-Rav needs to be advised, that Graham’s cronies will hack his smartphone and any computer systems of his – and his supporters in attempts to learn anything they can to get Graham re-elected.

Not what I hear August 14, 2014 at 12:35 pm

What fucking street do you live on?

Mike at the Beach August 14, 2014 at 11:58 pm

Your “street” must boast an abundant supply of crack. Did you happen to catch the results of the Primary election? LG carried the race on night one, even among the Republican faithful and all of the loonies who were arrayed against him. Now that the race has moved to the electorate at large, their best chance at dethroning him has passed. TR is a sideshow, and even his 2-6% will be shaved pretty evenly from Hutto and LG.

Blue Sky August 14, 2014 at 11:06 am

Graham doesn’t appreciate life, however, he obviously enjoys killing people. He is a chicken little fear monger operative for the war machine. Graham is not a solution to resolving anything with building America back up to what it use to be. Someone who runs around like a madman, throwing their hands in the air, screaming at the top of their lungs that Charleston will be nuked – strong indicators of a very unstable mind.
Just like a fort … a fort to keep dangers back and from the inside … the US has needed a complete wall along the border with Mexico. But because of Grahams history and his failures, America has been so far polluted, we have headless bodies showing up across the USA that are the tell tale signs of Mexican gangs and the deadly Mexican drug cartels. We have illegals raping our children … raping our women … illegals killing our citizens. It is so far out of control. Lawless cockroaches. And Graham holds his arms open, wanting to give them all a hug – and amnesty.

Is this tonight or next Thursday? This could be very entertaining.

My Dog Even Knows August 14, 2014 at 2:10 pm

My dog just took a dump on newspaper I have on the garage floor. He landed it right on Grahams face. GOOD BOY! GOOD BOY!!

Rav Takes It Away From Graham August 14, 2014 at 2:59 pm

Graham has sold South Carolina out. He does not give a rats ass either. He is not a family man. Graham has no hobbies … does not hunt, does not fish, does not attend sporting events, does not go to church, does not even drink an ice cold beer or eat boiled peanuts.
So fucking what if Rav was busted with cocaine. Who really cares. You old timers are so over the hill you need to sit down and shut the hell up. Young people like Rav. Young people don’t want a closet freak war monger baby killer like that douche bag Graham.
Rav is going to University and College campuses … the students LOVE HIM. They look at Graham as a nutcase.

Matt August 14, 2014 at 8:18 pm

Are all political events posted on fits, or just ones where the politician has paid advertisements on Fits? Guessing the latter……

Mike at the Beach August 15, 2014 at 2:08 am

Yeah! Another 6 votes for TR! He’s rollin’ now…

Squishy123 August 15, 2014 at 2:30 pm

Oh look, little bastard Ravenel… and his daughter.

Does the red headed Tammy Fay Mascara girlfriend (is she still his girlfriend?) go on these trips or does just the baby go?
