  • To born too late: Jim Clyburn is not running this state. He is elected to represent the 6th district in Washington. Of course if he were elected governor, he could be a good governor. But he is not running, he knows he can't win. At least he can win the race for the 6th district. But not for governor. SC is too conservative for him.

  • Re: 194,000 South Carolinians could get insurance if McMaster expanded Medicaid, study shows
  • If my math is correct, with the federal money alone that would amount to $51,494.00 each for those 194,000 people to have insurance a year. Seems a bit extravagant to me.

  • Andy, that was a good article. As an educated, firat generation Asian-American, I do feel the same things all the time but some things cannot be explained by just a report from anyone. This state has come a long way but has farther to go. As for the immigrants, they should just go to another state, like California, whom btw has lots of diversity and…

  • Re: There's only one reason McMaster thinks Trump deserves Nobel Prize
  • So is there a Republican candidate for governor, who would oppose the Nobel prize for Trump, or who would even oppose Trump and his terrible behavior etc.? After all, if any Republican candidate were to oppose Trump, they could not win the primary. So they won't even run for governor. Or if they run for governor, they pretend to like Trump, because most Republican voters…
