Political Resolutions for Conservatives

Political Resolutions for Conservatives

Sometimes we get so caught up in what’s going on in politics at the moment that we can lose sight of what’s important and what to do next. Don’t let that happen this year. If conservatives are going to be successful in the long-term, then we have to THINK long-term.

With that in mind, here are a few suggested resolutions for conservatives in 2019.

Focus on the Fundamentals

No matter how things may change, the need to do the fundamentals remains the same. The most fundamental _element_ of …

Can I count you in?

Can I count you in?

Fellow SC Republicans,

I’m writing to let you know that I’m running for re-election as State Chairman of our South Carolina Republican Party.

I want to begin by thanking everyone for all that they did to support our party in the 2018 election cycle. Whether it was your leadership, your willingness to be a candidate, or volunteering your time and treasure, I greatly appreciate it!

The results speak for themselves.

We kept every state-wide constitutional office in Republican hands – AGAIN
We maintained our State House majority
We picked up more …

Key Attributes of Good Conservative Activists and Leaders

Key Attributes of Good Conservative Activists and Leaders

As you’ve surely noticed there are a lot of people involved in politics with many different strengths and weaknesses. But what kind do we need MORE of?

What kind of people should you seek out and try to work with? What kind of people should you actively try to recruit and get involved in politics as you (hopefully) help build the conservative farm team in your area? What kind of people should you support for leadership positions (or even elected office)?

The answer is what we need …

The Fundamental Elements of Effective Politics

The Fundamental Elements of Effective Politics

It’s a fundamental truth of politics that if you don’t win, you can’t govern.

You can’t implement policy if you aren’t elected to a position that allows you to do so, or if you don’t have sympathetic elected officials that are willing to help. With that being the case, it’s critical that conservatives know the basics of effective politics if we expect to see our ideas implemented in government.

Julius Caesar once said that the only thing needed to conquer the world was “men and money”. Modify …

From the trail

From the trail

In the last few months I have been able to speak with over forty-five different Republican groups all around our state about the future of our party. It’s been a great experience, and the more people that I meet and the more feedback I receive, the more optimistic I become about what we can do together in the future.

Of course I haven’t been able to meet with everyone (yet), so I thought that I would pass along a video from a recent visit to one …

Why I’m running

Dear fellow SC Republicans,

I am writing to let you know that I am running for State Chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party.

As you have probably heard, current SCGOP Chairman Matt Moore has decided not to seek another term at the next State Convention. We thank him for his dedication, hard work and service to our party, and we look forward to working with him to continue to advance our conservative principles.

I have spent almost thirty years working in grassroots politics, from conservative political groups …
