Independent U.S. Senate candidate Thomas Ravenel and Beaufort County Councilman Rick Caporale will talk about their campaigns with Beaufort Tea Party members at 5:30 p.m. Monday at Fuji's Restaurant on 97 Sea Island Parkway on Lady's Island.
Ravenel is the former state treasurer and newly minted reality TV star. He joined the race against Sen. Lindsey Graham last month as a petition candidate with the support and signatures of more than 17,000 registered voters across the state.
Caporale was set to defend his seat representing part of Hilton Head Island and greater Bluffton against Colleton River Plantation resident Lynn King. However, King failed to collect enough signatures to qualify as a petition candidate, the county indicated Friday.
