Dawson To Break Pledge, Seek Reelection As Party Chair
FITS has confirmed from three independent, reliable sources that SCGOP Chairman Katon Dawson will break his pledge to serve only two terms as Party Chairman and seek a third term.
Dawson, who has presided over a financially sound but ideologically fractured state GOP organization since his election in April, 2002, is likely to face a strong challenge from Columbia attorney Kevin Hall, a well-known ally of Gov. Mark Sanford, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham and U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint.
Dawson did not immediately respond to FITS' request for comment.
