Sullivan’s Island resident Larry Kobrovsky was unanimously re-elected as Chairman and Maurice Washington was elected as First Vice Chairman of the Charleston County Republican Party on Thursday, April 20 at the Charleston County Republican Convention.
Chairman Kobrovsky touted the success of last year’s record turnout in the Republican Presidential Primary, in which over 55,000 people participated, which is 15,000 more people than those who voted in the Democratic Primary.
