The beginning of 2012 marks the election cycle ramping up into full steam. South Carolina's First in the South Presidential Primary is right around the corner and we will make our choice for President Obama to continue leading our country back to the stellar promise that we know it to be. On Saturday, January 28th at 10:00am, we will take an important step in our country's future and head to the polls to re-elect President Obama.
All across Richland County we will join our fellow community members and begin the process of selecting our President. The precinct meetings will not only be your opportunity to vote for President Obama in the primary, but to begin organizing your local community for the upcoming elections not only in 2012, but for 2014 as well. Also, this will be the first mandatory step in becoming a delegate for the 2012 Democratic National Convention held in Charlotte.
"This year we have a grand ole' field of unelectable candidates on the Republican side. From 'flip-flop Mitt' to the baggage of Newt, our country can't afford to lose the momentum that our country has gained from having President Obama at the helm," Richland County Democratic Party Chair Boyd Summers said when asked on the turnout expected for the democratic precinct meetings.
