Democratic gubernatorial candidate Vincent Sheheen joined a group of South Carolina mayors in calling for the removal of the Confederate flag from the grounds of the S.C. State House.
“Today, we are charting a new path for South Carolina focusing on the future, not the past,” Sheheen said. “Leadership matters, and we must speak up for things that are right and abandon the divisive politics of the past. To compete in the global economy we must welcome and keep the best and the brightest, so we must fly a flag that brings us all together. We must be a state that looks forward, towards a future of possibilities not backwards to discord. To honor our forebears and to promote unity, it’s time to move the Confederate Flag from the front lawn of our Statehouse.”
