SC party leaders trade jabs over gunshot fired into local GOP office

Democrats and Republicans clash

After an unoccupied Lancaster County Republican Party office took a bullet to its glass facade on Sept. 20, a war of words erupted between SC GOP Party Chairman Drew McKissick and Democratic Party Chairman Trav Robertson. The Republican side of the tussle blamed the incident on the ‘radical left,’ while the Democratic side suggested the gunfire was staged by the Republicans.

Furman University’s Danielle Vinson ’89, a professor of politics and international affairs, commented in an article appearing in The Post and Courier about the verbal brawl. “Neither side has handled this in the way this ought to have been handled. They could have been two reasonable adults and waited…for the results of the investigation. We don’t need to add fuel to the flaming tensions in this country,” she said.
