Over the weekend, Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz raised money and heated up the rhetoric against the GOP as the party primes for the 2012 General Election.
South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Chad Connelly over the weekend praised Nevada Republicans for moving their presidential caucus to February 4, 2012:
“Nevada Republicans, led by Chairwoman Amy Tarkanian, chose unity over chaos and brought order to the 2012 nominating calendar,” SC GOP Chair Chad Connelly said in a press release.
Florida recently shifted its primary to an earlier date, setting into motion a scramble by other states to regain their placements on the campaign calendar. New Hampshire, to remain first, threatened to move its primary to the end of this year. National party leaders say this is a more reasonable schedule for the candidates.
One of those candidates, former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum announced that he’s back in SC tomorrow. His schedule includes a fundraiser to benefit the Spartanburg Republican Party and an afternoon speech at the Greenville First Monday Club, which is held at Greenville’s Poinsett Club.
