Rick Beltram Looking To Hire Security Guard

After the fiasco that has turned up at the Spartanburg County Election Commissions office over Beltram’s poll watching tactics, there have been several threats made to the Famed or Wanted GOP Chairman.

We overheard this conversation today while attending a Rally at the Junction Too at Hearon Circle where Governor Mark Sanford came to rally the troops and offer his support to “the reformed minded individuals” that the county has selected to lead the ballot next weekend.

I must admit though, Beltram being a Jersey boy, I’m surprised he has not needed a security guard any sooner than he has.  I remember 15 months ago he was being blasted from all over the nation for his position on “banning the Paul Campaign” from events in Spartanburg after Paul’s comments challenging the wars.

Today, Rick Beltram on behalf of the Spartanburg GOP filed a law suit accusing Bob Walker of campaigning as a “write-in” candidate against the state’s sore loser law.  Beltram was hoping for an injuction to be filed this afternoon and have a hearing with Judge Cole as soon as 2:30pm today.  We’ll have more on the story as it develops.

Here is the mailer that was sent out to residents in district 38 as FITSNews reported earlier.  Rick Beltram made sure the appropriate props were given to the FITSNews crew for breaking the story.



UPDATE (15:35):
The Conservativist has also learned that phone calls were being made in House District 38 that were being paid for by “Bob Walker” according to the caller.

Senator Lindsey Graham will be at the Spartanburg County Republican Party HQ today at noon to meet with volunteers and give an update on the status of the campaign.

Later tonight, the Constitiution Party will be hosting an event at the J. Verne Smith Auditorium at 7pm.  The list of speakers includes John Langville (Candidate for SC Senate 7), Polly Nicolay (Candidate for SC Senate 1), Susie Cornelius (Candidate for Oconee County Treasurer), and Bob Conley (Democratic Candidate for US Senate).

Unfortunately, The Conservativist will not be able to make either event today, but each should have their own interesting twist.  The CP event tonight should be very interesting.
