We must work together to attain conservative reform

(By Karen Floyd for various newspapers statewide)

 

In May 2009, I began my service as chairwoman of the S.C. Republican Party. There was no honeymoon.

Within a few weeks, it became obvious that the Grand Old Party in the Palmetto State was facing internal divisions, controversy and monumental challenges. Our friends in the Democratic Party were poised to exploit what they thought was an advantage for them and to defeat our candidates in the 2010 election.

Of course, they failed.

Spartanburg’s Karen Floyd won’t seek SC GOP post next year

(By the Spartanburg Herald Journal)

 

State Republican Party Chairwoman Karen Floyd of Spartanburg announced Wednesday that she will not seek re-election to her post in May 2011.

Floyd’s announcement comes on the heels of a sweeping Republican victory last week, one that included the election of this state’s first Indian American and female governor, Nikki Haley, and ousted powerful Democratic U.S. Rep. John Spratt.

Biden-Paul Vice presidential debate: Who won?

(By Karen Floyd for Politico’s The Arena)

The benchmark for measuring the vice presidential debate winner is which candidate excelled in his ability to connect with and energize his targeted audience. While Vice President Biden successfully communicated to the Democratic base, so too was Congressman Ryan formidable in his ability to appeal to the undecided, independent voter.

Obama vs. Romney Debate: Who won?

(By Karen Floyd for Politico’s The Arena)

The debate was won by the candidate best able to sway ” the undecided voter,” Gov. Mitt Romney.

The benchmark for measuring the debate winner was two-fold; the candidate who excelled in his ability to connect to this targeted audience, and the candidate with command of the issues the undecided voter deemed critical.

Can Obama reverse Middle East violence?

(By Karen Floyd for Politico’s The Arena)

Gov. Romney’s polling advantage is initially spurred by our returning Armed Forces who know firsthand the value in an American presence abroad. Sadly, our servicemen and women return home and find an inability to secure meaningful and gainful employment in the United States.

A change of course for the Romney campaign?

Where does the ambassador’s death leave the U.S.?

(By Karen Floyd for Politico’s The Arena)

Prejudice in the typical sense will not play a great role in this election as middle to lower-income voters will focus on one issue this election: the economy. For the region to simply be understood in a single poll is presumptuous as even areas in certain states vary so greatly. In other parts of the country, similar patterns have emerged indicating a candidate’s background will play a larger role in voters’ decision than one’s race.

Obama’s “small ball” Presidency?

(By Karen Floyd for Politico’s The Arena)

The underlying motive of President Obama’s “school uniforms” approach is unknown. If the intent is primarily one of appearance, to offer a contrast to daily partisan Washington sniping, he may succeed in the short term. But without a quantifiable/measurable end that he can articulate, this approach will fail in the long term and the American public will see this for what it is.

Michele Bachmann – most improved candidate?

(By Karen Floyd for Politico’s The Arena)

I see something similar in the realm of politics — specifically, with conservative women politicians. To be sure, Michele Bachmann is not the first politician to misspeak (57 states, anyone?). And just as surely, she is not the first woman politician to be labeled with such a pejorative term as a \”flake\” because of what amounts to a simple misstatement. A male politician having to endure such a question for a similar transgression is inconceivable.

Can Santorum win the White House?

(By Karen Floyd for Politico’s The Arena)

At that time an unannounced candidate about whom little was known by the average Palmetto State voter, Santorum generated one of the most enthusiastic cheers of the evening after he was asked a question about Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels’ call for a “truce” on social values.

Is Bachmann A Threat To Palin?

(By Karen Floyd for Politico’s The Arena)

As a resident of South Carolina, the state with the fewest women elected to public office in the nation, my first reaction upon hearing this question was… why is this even a question?

Obama’s undue pressure on Israel?

(By Karen Floyd for Politico’s The Arena)

Not only did President Obama’s condition of using the 1967 borders as a starting point for any peace accord show a stunning lack of respect for an essential strategic ally, it was woefully inopportune and very poor timing.

South Carolina GOP Suggest Sanctions Against Florida for Early Primary Plan

(Fox News America’s Election HQ Blog)

South Carolina state Republican party Chairwoman Karen Floyd wants the Republican National Committee to severely punish the Republican party of Florida for its refusal to postpone its scheduled January 31 presidential primary to a later date in compliance with the national parties approved calendar. She has authored a letter to the full GOP suggesting sanctions against the Sunshine State.
