Dear Horry County Republicans,
Our next monthly Executive Committee meeting will be held at 6:00 pm on July 12, 2021 at HGTC.
Our Horry County convention a few months ago saw a significant increase of registered delegates, with more than 370 delegates in attendance casting votes for the party leadership. This turnout was the result of the tremendous efforts of many of you recruiting new members who were added during the reorganization and make-up sessions. We have also witnessed a significant number of precincts which elected precinct officers for the first time during organization.
There are a number of us who decided for the first time to take action and to participate at a grass roots level in our County GOP this year. Many of us learned how to get involved through Dan Schultz, an incredible patriot who has worked tirelessly across the nation to inspire conservatives through his Precinct Strategy. His simple explanation is “You're not in the Republican party unless you're a Precinct Committeeman. Precinct Committeemen are the Party.”
We are extremely happy to announce that Dan Schultz will join us through virtual video during our meeting July 12. Mr. Schultz will have the opportunity to explain more details of his strategy, to answer our questions and most likely to inspire all of us to do even more.
We would also like to thank everyone who attended our HCGOP sponsored world premiere of the Patrick Byrne film “The Deep Rig,” this past weekend in Surfside Beach. The Deep Rig chronicles in detail the fraud of the November 3, 2020 presidential election. If you were unable to attend the premiere and are interested in viewing, please contact us. We are exploring alternate options for in-person and virtual viewing, since our party has purchased the film rights.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you July 12 2021 at HGTC.
Roger Slagle, Chairman
Jeremy Halpin, Vice Chairman
Tracy Diaz, State Executive Committee Person

Many of you may be aware of a misleading news report from this morning about an unfortunate event that occurred yesterday at the "Rock the Red" conference in Greenville, SC. Due to many messages we have received, social media posts that have been brought to our attention, and the fact that our Chair and Executive Committeewoman were first person witnesses to the event, we have decided to make an official statement.
At the end of an otherwise amazing weekend, after the keynote speaker, General Michael T. Flynn had spoken, an infiltrator came to the front and grabbed a microphone and began to make a speech. He started off asking for a toast for General Flynn, and immediately began calling him a traitor to the country. Two gentlemen attempted to grab the microphone from the man as soon as they realized it was a disturbance and not a guest of the conference, and noticing a threat, Mr. Chad Caton, a Horry County EC, utilized his military training to defuse the situation by subduing the perpetrator. He brought the man to hotel security, while ensuring that none of the other guests, who at this point were very angry, harmed the man. The perpetrator was in possession of a weapon, and police did escort him from the hotel property in a police car. Additionally, witnesses heard the man self identify as Antifa. On the perpetrator's person, was a printed statement that included a threat stating the man had the intention of performing a "citizens arrest" on General Michael Flynn.
This morning, we learned that there was more to this story, and that hotel security had identified another individual waiting near the kitchen exit door where high profile guests would typically exit a venue for security reasons. The event planners are attempting to obtain security footage to further analyze and take steps if necessary.
We are thankful that Mr. Caton was in the right place at the right time and was able to help defuse what could have been a very dangerous situation. He maintained control until security could take over. It was a blessing he was there, and any reporting to the contrary is a horrible representation of how Fake News is spread.
Some individuals have come forward to state that Mr. Caton's involvement was an "embarrassment" to the Horry County GOP. To the contrary, both Roger Slagle and Tracy Diaz, who were attendees of the event, think that the actions Chad took were nothing short of heroic, regardless of how you may feel about him personally.
We have seen many calls for unity over the past few months, and we have every intention of moving forward in that spirit. We would like to state that the rhetoric and attacks on social media do absolutely nothing to encourage unity, and instead are a fine example of how, in fact, to stoke and fan the flames of division. We'd like everyone to think before they post, as each of you are representatives of the Horry County GOP, and carefully decide how your own actions may be accomplishing the opposite of what we all claim to desire.
We are glad that one of our own stepped up in the face of a threat to defend a distinguished American hero in General Michael T. Flynn. We will continue to support those who act in a selfless manner as we work to take back our country from the very people who disrupted the event yesterday.
