Jim Lee was elected Chairman of the Beaufort County Republican Party at the Beaufort County Convention held Saturday, April 27, 2019. This was his acceptance speech:
Good morning and thank you all.
I would like to thank our County Officers and the Volunteers who worked so hard leading up to this Primary and past election.
The number of phone calls, sign waving, and endless hours of work conducted on social websites and door-to-door campaigning were a true measure of their dedication to our Party, County, State and Country.
As we move forward, toward the 2020 Election and focus on regaining our Congressional Seat and re-electing President Trump, we are going to need all of you, times ten.
It is imperative that we begin to organize and make a united effort. Republicans, Conservatives, Libertarians, Tea Partiers, and Independents. We are all united in so many ways. Our love of country and its unique and exciting history, our respect for the Constitution, love of Freedom of Speech and Right to Bear Arms, our generous hearts historically, the most generous country in the world. Our love of our Judeo / Christian ethic and love of God. Our belief in limited government, low taxes, property ownership, and a capitalist economy, a healthy environment to raise our children and grandchildren, a respect for the Rule of Law, and a love for Law Enforcement brothers and sisters. A deep love and support of our military men and women. Most of all, a deep love for Life! From the beginning of our country, from its very infancy, our forefathers named it first of our unalienable rights, LIFE. We united knowing that life and our unalienable rights are endowed by our Creator. The Human life in its most defenseless stage is entitled to our protection. The pre-born should be protected by our Constitution. We must focus and unite under these American ideals. We must never surrender to the socialist ideology of the modern Democrat. We have witnessed the Democrats weaponized government agencies. We have witnessed the Democrat Party falsify a document to obtain a FISA warrant to spy on their opposition. And we are witnessing the Democrat Party politicize our very security in border control. We must unite to defend our American ideals, for in truth we unite to defend each other.
There is much work to be done, committees need to be filled, letters and emails written, phone calls made and poll watchers organized. United we will succeed, so let us pledge today to grow our Party, work side-by-side to share our ideas and work toward winning our upcoming elections.
I pray that God Bless you all and God Bless America!
