Virtual Forum SC State House Dist 118 & 123 – June 3rd @ 6:30 PM Hosted by Beaufort County Republican Party

Join the BCRP for a {Virtual} Forum with the candidates running for SC State House District 118 & 123. 

This is NOT a debate. Candidates will be asked questions from a panel of moderators. These individuals will be chosen based on experience and will make every effort to avoid any and all conflict. Our Young Republicans will also be participating and asking questions. If YOU have a question you would like asked, please send to us at bcrpscgop@gmail.com.

All of our {Virtual} Forums are scheduled on Zoom and will be live streamed on Facebook: facebook.com/BeaufortGOP.  In addition videos of the forums will be available several days later on www.beaufortscgop.com and Beaufort County GOP Facebook page.

Due to COVID19 restrictions our June Meeting is POSTPONED to October 7

While we were hopeful that we would be able to have a regular meeting prior to summer commencing, it appears that restrictions on capacity at venues makes that too difficult at this time. GBRC does not usually meet in the summer months so we want to wish everyone a wonderful summer break! Lastly, please do not forget to vote on June 9th!
