The Beaufort County Republican Party GOP is actively involved in our Lowcountry community. We serve by supporting local candidates, providing volunteers for state and national campaigns, and keeping the conservative voice heard.

Our goal is simple ... keep conservative, accountable leaders in office. Whether it be at the county, state, or national level, our goal is to keep republicans in office. Our candidates can't win this race without your help. handing out flyers word-of-mouth, and donating are all ways of helping the Beaufort County Republican Party achieve our goals together.

Looking Back and Moving Forward

I hope everyone is healthy and safe; I cannot say well because we are NOT well. The past three months have been like a nightmare. After a most successful campaign in Beaufort County and South Carolina, we lost some very important races.  President Trump fought a tough fight to the very end. While there is much evidence something funny went on, we are likely not to find out until later this year, when independent investigations and court cases unfold. The bottom line is we lost because the Democrat Party worked for years to "Change the Rules" and this time they were successful and used COVID as their excuse. Our job now is to make sure this never happens in South Carolina. SCGOP joined several lawsuits early and we fought to the US Supreme Court and won; we kept our voting integrity Procedures in place. BCRP passed our first Election Integrity Resolution in December and more are on the way. Election Integrity is a TOP priority for the SC Senate and House in Columbia. Our delegation is working hard on these initiatives.

Precinct Organization

In March of 2021, next month, we will be conducting Precinct Organization Meetings throughout Beaufort County. These meetings are required by SC Election Law to elect Republican Precinct Leaders and Delegates to the Republican County Convention; this is also when folks sign up to run the SCGOP Convention in May.

This period is also the time of year when folks interested in running for County Party Leadership positions to sign up. Anyone interested in getting involved in their precinct of becoming a County Republican Party Leader please let us know; send an email to Regional Directors will be reaching out and scheduling precinct meetings; more info to follow. 

Click here for a Precinct Reorganization Document with good info on the process. Click here a Precinct Organization Registration form that you may print fill out and bring to the next meeting.

Precinct Leadership Priorities

  • Executive Committee Person is the highest priority. The EC represents the precinct at County meetings, votes on resolutions, budgets, and appointments.

  • Precinct President is responsible for GOTV, Get Out the Vote. This includes voter registration, voter outreach, and canvassing for volunteers for Poll Watching, Phone Calls, Post Cards, Door Knocking, Sign Waves, Rallies, and much more.

  • Precinct Secretary is responsible for all the paperwork being delivered accurately and timely to the County and State Party.

In addition, a Precinct can have two Vice Presidents and a treasurer if activities warrant

Click here for a spreadsheet with results for all of the competitive races in Beaufort County. The most organized precincts had high voter turnout, 80+%, while the less organized ones, specifically, had nine precincts with turnout under 60% with one precinct at 36%.

Precinct Organization is the way to increase voter turnout. While the BCRP did very well in 2020, we also have lots of areas to improve in. We have a great deal of work to do in preparation for 2022. We will NOT have President Trump at the top of the ticket. We need all the 2020 voters to come out in 2022 to Retake the Senate and House. The BCRP fully supports President Trump and his goal of retaking the Senate and House.  Donald Trump said he is "ALL IN" ... well, let us join him.

Some have asked about the Lowcountry GOP Office in Riverwalk. We have the office for 2021 and beyond, we hope. The BCRP, Jasper Republican Party, and the Sun City Republican Club are sponsors. We will be utilizing the office for meetings and events in March and April.   

Our plan is to continue to hold smaller meetings in the office and larger meetings via ZOOM; stay tuned.

As 2020 winds down it is time to reflect and be thankful.  This has been a great year for the Republican Party in Beaufort County, CD #1, and South Carolina.  With everyone's hard work we took our Party to the next level.  We expanded our membership, we raised money to fund an office, a successful campaign and we established the BCRP as the dominant Political Party in the Low Country; period.  It is very hard to speak about accomplishments when we are seeing what is happening to President Trump.  We wish him the best and are behind him 100%.  That said, the election is not over and we still have 2 senate races in Georgia that will determine control of the US Senate.  We have many folks volunteering in Georgia and more are signing up.  There is a link below to volunteer.

We will be reaching out to volunteers in early 2021 to work in the office a few hours one day a week.  We have lots to do in 2021 and we will be even better in 2022.  

Please forward this email to your friends and family. 

Thanks for your help and support in 2020

Thank you for attending the Rally and supporting your candidates!

Special guest, Sen. Lindsey Graham was called back to Washington D.C. and could not attend our Rally. He was here in spirit though; Sen. Graham called in and addressed the crowd of over 300 people.

Rep. Nancy Mace and all of our local candidates spoke and really fired up the crowd. Music was provided by Jay Duff and he also helped get everyone in the right mood. He is on stage every Tuesday at Cheap Seats in Riverwalk. Stop by and see him!

Folks started showing up at 1 p.m. and stayed until everything was cleaned up – so appreciated!

Our Volunteers are the BEST. We received so many compliments on our Team. I am not going to mention names because there are far too many.  The "Women for Trump" were GREAT and the Sign Wave was awesome.

Lastly, everyone has asked: “When is your next Rally?” Right now, we are looking at Sunday, October 25 from 3 – 5 p.m., same place (Riverwalk).  We will keep everyone posted. Please share this email with friends and family and help us grow!
