Dr. Winn will be addressing the importance of reaching out to minority communities during this election and beyond with a Republican message of hope and greater opportunity.
An Air Force veteran, former Columbia police officer and self-employed cosmetologist with over 30 years service as a pastor, Dr. Winn says he came to the epiphany that he was really a Republican some years ago when he took his daughter to a festival in Clarendon County.
During the event, he came across a campaign worker for a Republican who was running against Jim Clyburn at the time. She asked him why he was a Democrat.
“That was the first time in my life anybody ever asked me that. And I began to think about it, mull it over and do the research on it,” he said. “I found out I was a Democrat just because I was told I was supposed to be, just caught up in society’s dogma. And that’s when I decided to make the change.”
A brief business meeting of the Executive Committee will follow the public meeting.
Please call Chairman Mal Weatherly (843-319-4262) for more information. Hope to see you at the meeting.
Bette Cox, Secretary
Florence County Republican Party
