A group of people with American flags and signs that read "Impeach Obama," "Honk to Impeach" and other slogans returned to the Upstate on Tuesday.

The group is one of many others that will be seen across the country, asking for answers on everything from Benghazi to the IRS scandal, and for impeachment proceedings to begin against President Barack Obama.

The group gathered at the New Cut Road overpass along I-85 in Spartanburg, waving flags and holding signs to show their opposition to the President of the United States.

State Senator Glenn Reese, a Democrat from Spartanburg County, told FOX Carolina that he recognizes the right to protest, but believes the group may be rushing to judgment.

He said all of the issues are controversial and said, "I don't think anyone has a handle on anything that's been done technically wrong at this point."

Reese knows Obama personally, having met him while he was campaigning in South Carolina.

"Let the process work," Reese said. "I don't think he's done anything to be impeached for, and even if the impeachment process happened, I don't think he'd be thrown out of office."

Process or not, protester Genie Heist said she has support for local efforts and from all political parties.

"We're not affiliated with any party or any activist party. We are just grassroots people who care," Heist told FOX Carolina.

The group held a protest this previous weekend and returned to the overpass on Tuesday for a second gathering to support their cause.
