The Upcountry Coalition of Conservative Organizations announced Tuesday that they have joined the Greenville County GOP chairman Patrick Haddon in calling for the expulsion of Lexington County Senator Jake Knotts from the Republican Party. That comes after he referred to Nikki Haley as a “raghead” earlier this month.
Harry Kibler is a spokesperson for the coalition and the Chairman of RINO Hunt.
Kibler asserts that Knotts has disregard for the constitution and his oath of office.
The Greenville County GOP and Lexington County GOP have already censured Knotts and demanded his resignation.
Patrick Haddon, who is also first vice-chair of the state GOP, will ask for a vote on the issue at the GOP Executive Committee meeting Saturday in Columbia. Hadden says Republicans need to take a stand.
Coalition Chairman Jonathan Hill says the GOP should expel Knotts and should not associate itself with a person like him. He says Knotts can run as a petition candidate if he wants.
