This is what Rick Beltram had to say about Jim DeMint:
When Jim DeMint comes by in 10, Karen’s not going to be county chairman, Kevin Hall is not going to be county chairman, Beltram will be county chairman and when he comes and wants to know what we can do for him, I am going to be on my hands.
These remarks were made while discussing Senator Jim DeMint and his 2010 campaign, that because Jim DeMint endorsed Kevin Hall for State GOP Chairman instead of Beltram, the Spartanburg County GOP will be sitting on its hands in 2010 if and when he asks for assistance. You can listen him yourself here:
At this time, the current Spartanburg GOP Chairman, Curtis Smith, has once again moved the party offices inside the business offices of Rick Beltram. Curtis’ decision and affiliation with Beltram is politics of the very shady past that Spartanburg Republican voters should be alarmed at.
