Steve has been active politically with both the Republican Party (formerly) and the Constitution Party (formerly). He has been seated as a delegate to the state GOP convention. Later, he was the Lexington County member of the state executive committee for the Constitution Party of SC. He also served as a member of the Constitution Party’s National Committee. Steve Lefemine was the Constitution Party candidate for South Carolina State Senate District #26 in November 2000; for the U.S. House of Representatives special election for District #2 on December 18, 2001; for the U.S. House of Representatives District #5 in November 2002; and for the U.S. House of Representatives District # 2 in November 2004. As of the end of December 2004, he has separated from the Constitution Party because of their compromise on the Sanctity of Life plank of the CP national platform, as well as their unbiblical ecumenical practices, and unbiblical violation of God’s created order vis-à-vis the roles of men and women. Lefemine is currently an Independent considering the possibility of running for the U.S. House of Representatives District # 2 as a write-in candidate in the November 7, 2006 election.
