Rebukes of Republican renegades gaining momentum
A week ago today we reported on the passage of a resolution censuring Sen. John McCain presented at the annual mandatory meeting of the Maricopa County Republican Committee. It was overwhelmingly approved 1,150 in support with only 351 opposed by the elected precinct committeemen (representing the county seat of Phoenix, and including numerous surrounding cities.
It turns out we were not alone.
Thursday night, the Pickens County, South Carolina GOP publicly rebuked Senator Lindsey Graham by passing a 30-point censure resolution. This makes Pickens County GOP the 7th Republican group that has passed similar resolutions so far in South Carolina.
The censure resolution, which passed by 78%, cites 30 examples of Graham violating the Republican Party platform. The censure states: Lindsey Graham has committed a long series of actions that we strongly disapprove of and hold to be fundamentally inconsistent with the principles of the South Carolina Republican Party.
Pickens County GOP Chairman, Phillip Bowers told Benswann.coms Joshua Cook, I have yet to talk to a single person who believes that an elected office is a life time job we need to change them out, like diapers, they need to be changed from time to time.
I can tell from the mood that the people were glad that we were taking a stand for our platform. The local representatives in the state house and the federal officers just trample on our platform. If they dont agree with our platform
they shouldnt run on our Republican platform and habitually ignore it. Is it really ethical to run as a Republican in PickensCounty, but then go to Columbia and consistently vote with Democrats?

Call them GOPes.
For “GOP Elite.”
Rhymes with dopes and mopes.
Great news...too long in the waiting,but great news nonetheless.
Stung? Maybe he’s become allergic and he’ll quit.
This is the kind of news I like!
This could be big.
Displays as GOPe.
Good with the censures....now they need to support the opponents of the RINOs...esp South Carolina w Graham
That would be a very long shot. The “Power Brokers’ in his constituency know how the power comes to them.
Since Senators are no longer appointed by State Legislatures and elected by the State’s by popular vote, can anyone tell me what effect will these censures have?
It gets the word out. That is the real importance as I see it.
Linda is a goner.
