County GOP Leader Dies From COVID-19

Greenville News – Greenville County Republican Party leader Pressley Stutts died Thursday morning after battling COVID-19 for nearly a month.

Stutts’ death was confirmed by Dan Harvell, who represents the Anderson County Republican Party on the South Carolina Republican Party’s executive committee.

Stutts and his wife were rushed to the hospital Aug. 1 after his oxygen levels dropped.

“The COVID has created double pneumonia in my lungs,” he said in a Facebook post at the time.

He further said in his post that as a proponent for “freedom and liberty,” no one should be forced to wear a mask and get vaccinated.

“When Kamala Harris visited to encourage vaccination, Stutts stood outside with a group of more than 100 people protesting against vaccine and mask requirements.”

Stutts’ health continued to deteriorate as the days went by. Late last week, he announced on Facebook that he was going on a ventilator.

A former chaplain for the Marines, Stutts became the executive committeeman of the Greenville County Republican Party during a July 22 meeting.

Before that, he was most well-known as the leader of the Greenville Tea Party.

He also owned two barbecue restaurants in North Carolina.

In June, when U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris visited Greenville to encourage more vaccination in the state, Stutts stood outside with a group of more than 100 people and protested amid scores of waving American flags and posters.
