North Charleston- SC- Hungryneck Straphangers has a CARTA with the Candidates (For Congress) Ride ride set for tomarrow morning (Thur. Feb. 28), leaving at  7:36 am from the N. Charleston Kmart on the CARTA Express 1.  We'll take that bus all the way to James Island, where we'll pick up another load of rider/voters and return with the candidate to Charleston all on the same bus.

The candidates will either return to N. Charleston on the Express 1 or take the regular CARTA #10 depending on the passenger load.

Ric Bryant(R) is committed to ride on Feb. 28 at this time.  All candidates are welcome.

There is a special congressional election here to fill the Congressional seat vacated by Tim Scott(R), who was chosen by Governor Nikki Haley to replace Jim DeMint, who resigned from his seat in the US Senate to run the Heratige Foundation after being reelected in 2010 in a race made famous by the presence of Alvin Greene, the mentally challenged unknown who won the Democratic Primary while under indictment for displaying pornography in a College Dorm.  20 candidates are running in the Primaries including former Governor Mark Sanford(R), Teddy Turner(R, son of former CNN owner Ted Turner, teacher & philanthropist) and Elizabeth Colbert Busch(D, sister of TV Personality Stephen Colbert and local business woman.)

This is the Facebook signup for the ride

Today we'll be handing out hundreds of post cards at bus stops throughout the area asking bus riders, people working in our hospitaltiy industry and others asking them to encourage the remaining 12 Candidates to ride the bus with us.  

5 Candidates have ridden CARTA with us thus far: Turner(R), Hoffman(R), Moffly(R), Carter Center(G) and Larkin(R)
Rick Bryant(R) has committed to ride Tomarrow
Colbert Busch(D) is scheduling her ride this week for a date probably in March
One Republican has indicated he doesn't plan to ride and opposes public transportation.  He also wishes to privatize the road system

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
