Political news ahead of the June primaries

Pickens County Republican Party sponsors a candidate stump meeting and pancake breakfast at 8 o’clock Saturday morning at the Pickens County Career and Technical Center on Chastain Road in Liberty. Local and statewide candidates plan to speak—including those running for Probate Judge, State House, Lieutentant Governor, State Treasurer, State Superintendent of Education, Adjutant General, Commissioner of Agriculture, and U-S Senate. According to Phillip Bowers, Pickens County Republican chairman, many races will be decided in June; not November, so this will be a great opportunity for voters to hear from Republican candidates before next month’s vote. Randy Simpson of the Seneca Tea Party has announced that Paul Corbeil, Republican incumbent for Seat One, Oconee County Council, has accepted an invitation to speak to the Tea Party meeting at 6:30 Thursday night, May 22 at the Seneca Gignilliat Community Center.
