Greenville, SC (December 31, 2023) – As the Greenville County Republican Party looks back over a very full and successful year, our 2023 highlights are almost too many to cover! Before we contemplate the critical year ahead — including SC’s Presidential primary in just 55 days — reflecting on our recent successes will recharge us for 2024. Here are the highlights of what We The People – YOUR GCRP – accomplished this past year . . . WOW!
