Congressman Jeff Duncan Announces Ron DeSantis as Keynote Speaker for 12th Annual Faith & Freedom BBQ

July 27, 2023

Laurens, S.C. — Congressman Jeff Duncan has announced Ron DeSantis as the keynote speaker for his 12th annual Faith & Freedom BBQ hosted at the Anderson Sports and Entertainment Center on August 28 at 6pm in Anderson, SC. The event is South Carolina’s leading opportunity for voters to meet and engage with an array of Republican leaders.

“I served with Governor Ron DeSantis in Congress and know how committed he is to restoring the values that made America the envy of the world,” said Congressman Jeff Duncan. “In Florida, Governor DeSantis refuses to let radical leftists brainwash children with Critical Race Theory (CRT) and he stopped the war on kids by blocking trans therapies like puberty blockers. Additionally, he has consistently opposed ESG and DEI policies from corporations that are beholden to leftists or foreign governments. On good days, Ron and I have rallied conservatives in the House; but, on a dark day in America, we came face-to-face with the radical leftist that tried to kill Republicans during the Congressional Baseball shooting. House Republicans overcame that fateful day and conservatives will overcome the radical, woke, leftist policies that put our grandchildren’s future in jeopardy.”

“The Faith & Freedom BBQ is my favorite event of the year. South Carolina is known as the proving ground for GOP presidential candidates, and I’m humbled that Faith & Freedom BBQ has become the number one stop as candidates contend for the vote of South Carolinians.”

Noted as South Carolina’s largest annual gathering of conservatives, the Faith & Freedom BBQ welcomes guests from the ruby-red Upstate, Midlands, Pee-Dee and Lowcountry—in addition to voters from Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Florida and more.

Tickets are $35 and can be purchased at To thank them for their service, veterans and first responders may purchase tickets for $1.
