State Republican Party staff members eavesdropped on a conference call organized by party activists to strategize ways to convince GOP candidates to adopt more of the party platform, according to several people who participated in the meeting.

Republican activists have been critical of chairman Karen Floyd’s tenure, arguing the party is spending too much money on consultants at the expense of promoting a conservative ideas and candidates.

S.C. GOP 1{+s}{+t} Vice Chairman Patrick Haddon organized the early September call with party activists including Randy Page, Chad Connelly and Justin Evans. Organizers said the call was intended as brainstorming session for fall campaigns, and not to discuss party leadership or direction.

But when the call ended, the list of participants contained an unknown number. Organizers called the number and reached a phone within Republican Party offices.
