First Report 11/18/11: The South Carolina Tea Party will be holding its first convention on January 15th and 16th, 2012 right here in Myrtle Beach. 

The event is scheduled at the same time as the scheduled GOP presidential debate that will also be held here. This might make for a pretty successful and if anything eventful weekend here along the Grand Strand. 

The Tea Party Convention will not be open to the public, but they are expecting at least 400 people to attend. For the details so far, hop on over to Carolina Live
