–Rally Expected to Draw Capacity Crowd for the “Last Word Before the First-In-The-South Primary”

Aiken, SC, January 3, 2008 – Two days before voters head to the First-in-the-South Republican Presidential Preference Primary, the Aiken County Republican Party will give them the opportunity to hear all of the Republican presidential candidates speak in person at one event. The party is holding a Presidential Candidates Rally on Thursday, January 17, 2008, at the USC-Aiken Convocation Center, 471 University Parkway, Aiken, SC 29801. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

All of the Republican presidential candidates on the South Carolina primary ballot have been invited to participate. Each candidate will be given 15 minutes to address the crowd. The Rally is scheduled to end just 33 hours before South Carolina polls open on Saturday, January 19, being truly the “Last Word Before the First-In-The-South Primary.”

Media Committee Co-Chairman Vicki Simons spoke about the significance of this rally’s timing for voters in two states: “While South Carolina’s voters will have their opportunity to vote in a Republican presidential primary just two days after this rally, Georgia’s voters will have their opportunity to vote in a similar primary just two and a half weeks later. Candidates who are serious about trying to win votes in the CSRA should make every effort to attend.”

This will be the fourth time that Aiken County Republicans have hosted a rally for Presidential Candidates in the days leading up to the First-in-the-South Republican Party Presidential Primary. Over 4,000 voters are expected to attend the 2008 rally, surpassing the 3,500 who attended in 2000 when the event was held in the smaller Campus Student Center. This Rally is expected to draw a capacity crowd at USCA’s Convocation Center, which opened in 2007.

The event is free to the public, but a donation is requested. Everyone is welcome!
