Tribute to South Carolina’s Tea Party Convention Founder, Joe Dugan
PolitiChicks is very sad to lose our dear friend, Joe Dugan.
Joe was one of the most amazing people as he fought relentlessly to protect our freedoms to the very end.
Dugan launched the South Carolina Tea Party Convention in Myrtle Beach, SC in 2012 and gave a platform to many patriots from around the country. In fact, the convention hosted several of the 2016 GOP primary candidates, including, Ben Carson, Mike Huckabee, Rick Santorum, Ted Cruz, and President Donald J. Trump. Dugan’s purpose for starting the convention was to provide a platform for individual citizens to educate themselves about the important issues of the day.
Joe was very special to me personally as he was the one who taught me to stand up, to find my voice, and to fight for my family, no matter the cost. He had faith in me, even in those moments when I had little faith in myself.
He was caring and he was passionate about the people and the things he loved most.
Joe will be missed by many.
