American Party Event on Sept. 30 Features Co-Founder and U.S. Senate Candidate

Quick Facts

 Jill Bossi of Tega Cay, South Carolina, is running for the U.S. Senate seat held by Tim Scott.
 Jim Rex, one of the American Party founders and a former S.C. education superintendent, will talk about creation of the party and why it is needed.

ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA - The Winthrop Young Americans student organization will host Jim Rex and Jill Bossi at 11 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 30 in G01 Owens Hall on the Winthrop University campus.

Bossi of Tega Cay, South Carolina, is running for the U.S. Senate seat held by Tim Scott. She is running as an American Party of South Carolina candidate, a group founded by Democrats and Republicans last year as an alternative to the two-party system.

Rex, one of the American Party founders and a former S.C. education superintendent, will talk about creation of the party and why it is needed. He also will describe a new ballot initiative announced last week to allow voters a chance to recall politicians who break the law or demonstrate poor character.

The option requires that voters approve changing the constitution after a two-thirds majority of the Legislature agrees to put the proposal on the next general election ballot, which would be 2016 at the earliest. The American Party must find a legislator willing to introduce such a bill, according to the Associated Press.
