Three SC Senate "Fiscal Conservative Rock Stars" to Endorse Ron Paul for President

The trio of Senators will endorse Paul at an event in the S.C. State House on Tuesday at 10:00 a.m.

Three State Senators in the socially conservative South Carolina Upstate will endorse U.S. Rep. Ron Paul’s presidential bid on Tuesday, sources tell FITS – another sign of the Texas Congressman’s growing momentum as the Palmetto State’s pivotal “First in the South” presidential primary approaches.

FITS is in the process of confirming the names of the three Senators, but we’re told all three are “fiscal conservative rock stars” as well as die-hard social conservatives … (i.e. the sort of people who were recently urged to back Rick Santorum).

News of the endorsements comes one day after Paul’s campaign scored a major coup by landing the endorsement of Lowcountry S.C. Senator Tom Davis – arguably the most influential conservative lawmaker in state government.


**Speculated to be**

Lee Bright – who fits the fiscal/social conservative rock star and who had endorsed Bachmann.

Kevin Bryant – so I checked out his blog, and mystery solved on who the three Senators are:

Looks like it will be Bright and Bryant along with Danny Verdin – if this picture is any indication.

Do you want to promote marriage and serious commitment to marital vows, strong families, honesty, and Christianity?

Then live your life the way Ron Paul has, setting the example others will want to emulate.

And vote for the man.

South Carolina - Thanks !!

Personally speaking, my experiences with these residents of South Carolina has been a good one. They were always very laid back and helpful. Sometimes a bit upfront lol but generally very good people. ie. Some locals once gave my friends and I a personal tour of the capitol years back out of the blue. Very cool imo.

I wish them well and hope their hurricane experiences will be more limited in the future.

p.s. I have no idea how they deal with the humidity :p

Thanks for the link-They Need to Update Tom Davis Endorsement

And it is color coded and I see an error where they have Ron Paul being endorsed by someone but they color coded it in red which is Perry's color code. I am surprised that Perry has so many endorsements, what is up with that? Note, at the very top is DeMinted with statement He Does not endorse. No, just like a politician doesn't want to step on any ones toes and besides he voted yes for NDAA. If he were to endorse Ron he would not really represent his beliefs. Not polite but just calling it as I see it.


Good deal

Hey everyone,

RP is getting hammered by some of the comments on the Tom Davis endorsement. I can't stand all of these stupid old sheeple that think RP is a crazy racist who wants to have Iranians rock their children to sleep with a heroin needle in their arm. Please help straighten these lost people out on this thread! =)

let's hope, some more will follow.
God bless our good Doctor.

Life, Liberty and Property!

It's an "RP Snowball Effect"..the endorsements keep on coming!!!

WOOHOO for SC & RP!!!!

It's not really a story

until we get the names.

We appreciate all that you are doing down in SC... I am just curios to see no Town Hall meetings scheduled for Dr. Paul, compared to Iowa & NH.

Are there any Town Hall type of events schedule for him to Speak along with Tom Davis?

Nothing totally confirmed except

the debate tonight, a possible stop in Spartanburg tomorrow, a pro-life forum in Greenville, Wednesday (for sure w/Perry and Santorum) - and I'm guessing SRLC debate in Charleston, Thursday. Once everything is nailed down, I could say for sure. It's Crazytown down here!!

Ron is gaining serious momentum. Absolutely amazing that he is doing this in SC...

Gee could they maybe hustle up

and announce before the debate tonight? So maybe RP can get some airtime?

not even be a bad choice to endorse him after the debate.
no matter what will happen today some undecided voters will think he won the debate (we all know he wins the debates but some people are still half asleep whats going on). =)

There were two other officials there in Columbia,

besides these guys, that were "in cognito" still!!!!

place with 3 more senator endorsements from SC. This is a dream come true. No it is a nightmare because the media will not let anyone know about these endorsements. So what do we do? Work smarter not harder. We can get this news out to the masses. We will post it everywhere and we can get homemade signs out for the public to see. Us against them. We are going to win this revolution and no one can stop us!



Kevin Bryant - Anderson

Lee Bright - Spartanburg

Danny Verdin - Laurens

Not yet?
Larry Grooms - Charleston
