This week saw a flurry of activity in campaign stumping by the many Presidential hopefuls. Mitt Romney and Sam Brownback made stops on Thursday and Rudy released radio spots. Mike Huckabee is supposed to be in York and Upstate SC on Tuesday (8/21) and Wednesday (8/22). According to SC Politics Today, the Greenville stop will be at Tommy’s Ham House and the Spartanburg stop at the World Famous Beacon Drive-In. Sen. Barack Obama is scheduled to be in Conway at Coastal Carolina University on Thursday (8/23). Also on Thursday, Ann Romney will be in Spartanburg with Andre Bauer and SC State Senator Jim Ritchie at the Spartanburg County Executive GOP meeting at the Marble Slab Creamery on E. Blackstock Rd. John Edwards will be in Spartanburg on August 30th at the Annual County Democratic Party Rally. There is a cost for admission to this event. See the Spartanburg County Democratic Party Website for details.

I was able to see Brownback when he made his stop at Wade’s on Thursday. He spoke very well, but had a deep concerned look on his face though (maybe because he had an hour to get to the Charlotte airport so he wouldn’t miss his flight). There may have been 7 – 10 supporters there though. There were 5 Ron Paul supporters to show up including myself. I was looking forward to the opportunity to hear him speak and at least get a picture with him and my daughter. A few others came out to question him on his pro-life voting record where he voted yes on a few Planned Parenthood earmarked bills. He said he would research those bills. I hope to see the references soon myself.

I hope to have my video up soon. He said a few things that concerned me, but until I see the video again, I’ll refrain from commenting.

On the non presidential front, Congressman Bob Inglis will be doing his monthly “Let’s Talk” at Wades on August 27th (noon), followed by a Town Hall meeting at the Boiling Springs Family Resource Center on the 28th (7 – 8:30).
