(Columbia, S.C.) – Florida Senator Rick Scott, former Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, former President Trump Chief of Staff and RNC Chairman Reince Priebus, and conservative attorney Cleta Mitchell are set to speak at the South Carolina Republican Party's inaugural First in the South Republican Action Conference in late October.
"We're excited to announce these conservative leaders as our first confirmed speakers at our First in the South Republican Action Conference," said SCGOP Chairman Drew McKissick. "Our grassroots activists and leaders on the ground punch above their weight on the political stage, and we're looking forward to hearing from our strong party leaders, preparing for 2022, and showcasing the talent and resources our state has to offer on a national level."
Attendees will hear from speakers in general session format, panels, and breakout sessions that will cover a wide range of topics, including election integrity, rule of law, women in politics, and minority outreach.
The First in the South Republican Action Conference will be October 29-31 and will be a biennial conference. All but one of the Republican nominees for president have won SCGOP's presidential primary.
