Pray for Nettie

South Carolina Republicans have formed a website and are planning a benefit event on behalf of Nettie Britts, the 24-year-old Young Republican leader who was savagely attacked in her home late last week.

Britts remains hospitalized in serious condition and her intruder remains at large after the attack, which police believe took place late Wednesday night or early Thursday morning in North Columbia, S.C.

The Richland County Young Republicans chair suffered a fractured skull in the attack, which does not appear to have been politically motivated.

Britts’ colleagues described her as a “good kid” and a hard worker who earned their respect.

“Nettie has always been the first person to volunteer on almost any campaign I’ve worked for,” said GOP activist and fund-raiser Sunny Phillips. “I cannot fathom the violence that she has just encountered and I hope that they bring those responsible to justice.”

A website, HelpNettie.com, has been formed to accept donations on behalf of Britts, and popular GOP blogger Earl Capps is said to be organizing a benefit on Britts’ behalf.

Additionally, a Facebook group has formed to support Britts.

Obviously, we would encourage everyone to lend a hand, and to keep Britts in their thoughts and prayers as she continues to recover …
