Rick Beltram, Trophy Wives, and The Hottest Veep

September 5, 2008 by  
Filed under SC Politics

That’s right, our great Spartanburg County GOP Chairman has added to his list of accomplishments.

This time last year, Rick Beltram was catching heat over the comments he made about Fred Thompson’s wife…the Trophy Wife.  Well low and behold, he had to take the opportunity to make a comment about Sarah Palin at last night’s convention watching party at Chandi’s Bistro.

We have the hottest VP ever in Sarah Palin

Rick is very proud that we have the hottest VP ever and he is letting everyone know about it!

I do wonder how he survives making some of his comments.

Fred Thompson Campaign Raises Goal for One-Day Fundraising Efforts

January 11, 2008 by  
Filed under News

Apparently the Thompson campaign was pretty excited about the success last night. I wouldn’t know since I was not allowed in.

I received an e-mail from the campaign today discussing the large turnouts on the campaign trail and there success at the debate. So excited they wanted to raise the most money ever to this date.

Our Red Truck Challenge has achieved it’s goal and our television is purchased–now we need to add on these other key programs.

We need to keep the Red Truck Challenge going with the best online fund raising day we have had since Fred’s announcement.

So we have increased the goal to $750,000.

With Fred’s strong supporters and our momentum I know we can make it.

I am sure that the Ron Paul family of supporters will have a hay day with this news.
