Wilson hosts Aiken rally Saturday

AIKEN -- U.S. Congressman Joe Wilson will host a rally with local Republicans Saturday.

The Republican congressman will speak with the public between noon and 2 p.m. at the Aiken County Republican Party Headquarters located at 127 Greenville St., said Caroline Delaney, the congressman’s scheduler.

Mr. Wilson, of Charleston, has faced many critics since his outburst earlier this month during President Obama’s speech. During the speech on health care reform, Mr. Wilson shouted “You lie!”

Mr. Wilson has apologized for the outburst publicly and to the president directly since the incident.

Ms. Delaney could not yet confirm what the congressman would discuss during the meeting.
