Fourth Circuit Sets Oral Argument in South Carolina Open Primary Republican Party Lawsuit

The Fourth Circuit has set the week of September 16-19 for oral arguments in The Greenville County Republican Party v State lawsuit. The exact date within that week will be set soon.

This is the case in which the Greenville County Republican Party seeks to close its primaries to exclude non-Republicans. The lower court had said the county party does not have standing. The party is in a strong position because it pays for its own primaries, when the election concerns city offices.
