FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 7, ANDERSON – The Anderson Tea Party will be hosting the first non-partisan Congressional debate of 2010 for candidates of the Third District on Thursday, May 13th, from 7:00P.M. – 8:30P.M. at the Anderson County Library (note the time change).
“Most debates are hosted by a political party, a media outlet, or a university,” said Anderson Tea Party organizer Jonathon Hill. “It’s high time ‘we the people’ step up to the plate and ask pointed, direct questions that get to the heart of the issues we are concerned about.”
Six candidates have committed to participate in the debate: Joe Grimaud (R), Neal Collins (R), Brian Doyle (D), Rep. Jeff Duncan (R), Mike Vasovski (R), and John Dalen (Constitution Party). Candidates Richard Cash (R), Rep. Rex Rice (R), and Jane Dyer (D) have also been invited.
This will be the first Congressional debate in SC to be hosted and moderated entirely by grassroots citizens. Jonathon Hill stated that “we believe that we are making history in SC politics.”
For more information, to submit debate questions, or to RSVP, contact Jonathon Hill.

Rally attendees will be testifying at the bill’s first subcommittee hearing at 9:00, and will also be demonstrating outside the Blatt Building (1105 Pendleton St, Columbia), where the hearing will take place.
“Here in South Carolina we believe that the U.S. Constitution is still the supreme law of the land,” said Jonathon Hill and Randy Simpson, two of the rally organizers and leaders of the Anderson and Seneca Tea Parties. “We’re determined not to allow our Ninth and Tenth Amendment rights to be trampled by the government.” [Read more →]
