SC "Faith And Family" Forum: Status Check

BUSH, CARSON AND CRUZ ONLY CANDIDATES COMMITTED TO ATTEND EVENT …

Last week we posted an item on a scheduled “Faith and Family” debate to be held this week in Greenville, S.C. on the campus of Bob Jones University (yes, that Bob Jones University).

At the time, event organizers claimed “more than five leading Republican candidates have already affirmatively accepted, along with leaders from a number of national conservative public policy organizations.”

What’s the latest on that?

Well, the number of confirmed 2016 presidential candidates is apparently down to three … former Florida governor Jeb Bush, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and U.S. Senator Ted Cruz of Texas.

Two other candidates – New Jersey governor Chris Christie and U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida “have expressed strong interest as well” but are not confirmed.

Hmmmm …

No word on the plans of GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, Ohio governor John Kasich or former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina.

The so-called “2016 Faith and Family Presidential Forum” will be held on Friday, February 12 from 12:30 – 5:30 p.m. EST.  Sponsored by the Palmetto Family Alliance and the Conservative Leadership Project, the event will be moderated by Palmetto Family CEO Oran Smith and S.C. attorney general Alan Wilson.

You know … assuming candidates show up …

Hillary was BJU material and didn’t even know it! Bill thought the BJ stood for something else though.

While we are not forgetting Mark Sanford, Richard Eckstrom, and Bob Peeler;let us not forget Nelson Hardwick, Ken Ard, Bobby Harrell, and not least Thomas Ravenel, Andre Bauer and NIKKI HALEY, the revolving pathological liar.

While they’re at it, they should invite Denny ‘Pervy” Hastert, Newt “Morally-Bankrupt” Gingrich, and David “Diaper Boy” Vitter,

It is hard to write them off and dismiss them if you are a Republican campaigning in SC. It will be interesting to see how many show up.

Fair point. A lot of Cruz’ success in Iowa came at the hands of Evangelicals.

However, I think Trump is still leading the polls here? Not sure, but I don’t think SC has as many Evangelicals or at least the power of that voting block.

I predict Trump wins N.H. and S.C. and Nevada. Then it will up to Super Tuesday to see how many states Cruz/Rubio/Trump will win.

Dare we think the nomination could be wrapped by the end of March?

Trump at a “Faith & Family” forum? Now, that I would love to see. Comedy gold.

If Trump had a Ruger Blackhawk (six shots), and he emptied the pistol while standing in Times Square, how many perverts would he hit?
