Local coverage is provided here:

Seven of the Republican candidates vying for the 1st Congressional District seat being vacated by Henry Brown spoke at the event, including Mark Lutz, S.C. Rep. Tim Scott, Carroll Campbell III, Stovall Witte, Katherine Jenerette, Larry Kobrovsky, and Clark Parker. Each repeated core principals of the tea party throughout the event, including smaller government, less spending, Christian values and a stronger national defense, often to a crowd-wide positive response.

As for Jenerette:

North Myrtle Beach resident Jenerette, a military officer who has run for Republican office several times, said she was running for Congress to stand up against big spending, complicated legislation, and to repeal the 16th and 17th Amendments to the Constitution.

She also argued against firearms registration and conceal and carry permits.

It’s hard to stand out in such a crowded field, I think Jenerette’s decision to attend CPAC and to rub elbows with bloggers like myself was a very good move in that respect. That is a question of showing initiative. It would certainly have been worth the while of the other potential candidates to do so.

Of course being on the right side of the tea party groups never hurts either.
