The Beaufort County Republican convention, held Saturday near Bath saw conservatives within the party regain their footing and influence that was lost in the "yellow sheet" debacle two years ago.  The convention went well with no divisive incidents and the party now more united than it has been.
 
Elected chairman was Carolyn Garris, a hardworking volunteer and staunch conservative who had been a leader in the Women for Trump movement.  Garris is a uniter and was elected unanimously.  Elected as second vice chairman was conservative former  county GOP chairwoman Patricia Garrison, who handily defeated incumbent Joe Knox.  Bobby Roberson came up a few votes short in his challenge to incumbent Paul Varcoe for first vice chairman.
