2014 Recap – 2015 Update

The mid-term elections in 2014 were a huge success nationwide for Republicans.  A quick look at the numbers tell the story:

  • Since President Obama took office, the number of Republican Governors has increased from 21 to 31.
  • There are now more Republican state legislators than at any time since 1920 (more than 4100).
  • In 2008, Republicans held both the legislature and governor’s mansion in 8 states.  Today, that number is 24.

What is next for 2015?  At the state and local levels, party rules require reorganization:  Precincts must be organized, county parties must hold conventions and the state party must hold a convention.

Please contact the Marion County GOP if you have any questions regarding this process or if you are interested in being a delegate to either the county and/or state convention.  Please continue to check our Facebook page for updates — Search for Marion County (SC) Republican Party.
