The Democratic presidential primary election will be held here in South Carolina on Saturday, January 26. After it’s over, with a population of just over four million, we won’t get much attention from the candidates or national press, but up until then y’all may find us quite fascinating. Like any place run by humans, we have our problems. And our state government often serves us very badly. But mostly South Carolinians are just like you, so if you could keep the anti-Southern bigotry to a minimum, that would be much appreciated.
