In 2010, the Greenville County Republican Party, and the South Carolina Republican Party, filed a lawsuit to enable the party to limit voting in its primaries to only party members. Earlier this month the state Republican Party withdrew from the lawsuit. However, according to this story, the state party’s Executive Director, Alex Stroman, says the state party still supports the lawsuit, and the state party will simply let the Greenville County Republican Party carry on by itself. The state party says it withdrew from the lawsuit to save attorneys’ bills. This seems odd, because there doesn’t seem to be any logical reason why the Greenville Republican Party and the state Republican Party needed separate attorneys in any event.
