Spartanburg GOP to Host Sen. Jim DeMint

Senator Jim DeMint will be visiting the world famous Beacon Drive-in on August 20th, 2010 from 3-5 pm.

This event is being sponsored by the Spartanburg GOP and NEWS Radio WORD will be broadcasting from The Beacon as well.

It is very fitting that DeMint is making a stop in Spartanburg during his re-election campaign.

For those of you who don’t remember, during the intense battle for Spartanburg County Chairman in 2009, then chairman Rick Beltram said he would be sitting on his hands when DeMint comes to Spartanbug in 2010.  Why?  DeMint endorsed his opponent in the State GOP race that ended up not being as highly contested as was once thought.

Beltram lost the county GOP race, withdrew from state GOP race and has been working on embarrassing the local party since, forming his own Republican club and most recently staging a meeting to oust write-in candidate Jimmy McMillan from the State House 36 race.

Is it Political Irony or Political Payback?  You tell us!
