NC: “True MAGA Supporters” Spark Raft of County Republican Party Resignations

Source: Newsweek

“Several high-ranking county GOP officials have resigned after pressure from a group of outspoken critics questioning their leadership. Greenville County Republican Party’s Chairman Jennifer Black, First Vice Chairman Stacy Shea and Executive Committeeman Randy Page released a statement announcing their departures on Thursday. This came after a group called mySCGOP, a South Carolina group of Republicans backing a ‘MAGA agenda,’ alongside members of the Greenville Tea Party, questioned the legitimacy of the convention that led to their leadership. MAGA stands for Make America Great Again, a phrase linked with former President Donald Trump. … The group said they had determined ‘our energy is best used elsewhere to positively engage legislative issues that affect us, our families, and the citizens of our great state.’ ‘We remain in the fight for conservative ideals; however, we resign effective immediately from our county-wide posts,’ the statement concluded.” (07/09/21)
