Why are these two entities merging? What’s the benefit?
The best way to work together is to get together.
The South Carolina Independence Party has been a recognized and active political party in South Carolina since the late 60s. The national Forward Party was founded in October of 2021. As the two entities got to know each other, they saw how much common ground in terms of values, principles, and vision they had. Over the past seven months, the leaders of both parties have gotten to know each other well and came to the joint conclusion that the groups can be more effective working as one rather than individually.
