Bill Connor to lead Sixth District GOP


Republicans in the recently-reconfigured Sixth Congressional District met today to elect new officers, as well as delegates and alternates to the upcoming national convention in Tampa.

It was also a good day for the Blogland as four of five of those who won posts were endorsed on this blog earlier this week.

Elected without opposition were new Chair Bill Connor of Orangeburg, Vice-Chair Jim Pratt of St. Matthews, and Secretary/Treasurer Sandra Bryan of Blythewood.

In contested votes, Joe Flowers from Walterboro and Moye Graham from Graham Slough were elected as delegates to the national convention, with Janis Blocker from Round O and Celestine Parker from Columbia elected as alternates. Graham led the voting for delegate seats, drawing votes from nearly ninety percent of convention delegates.

Graham is one of the Four Horsemen of the Political Apocalypse, along with outgoing Chair Tom Grimes, Vice-Chair Mike Reino and blogger Earl Capps.

Considerable praise was given by several speakers for Tom Grimes, the outgoing District Chair who was moved into the Seventh District, including state GOP Chair Chad Connelly and a standing ovation from convention attendees. Grimes is seeking the Chairmanship of the new Seventh District GOP at their upcoming convention.
