Former Gov. Jim Hodges has endorsed the campaign of Democratic
gubernatorial hopeful Vincent Sheheen.
Hodges, who served one term from 1999 to 2003, said Sheheen had the
right approach to building the economy and business climate for small
businesses and improving education.
Hodges was a lawmaker when he ran
for governor, just as Sheheen represents Camden in the state Senate.
This is the first time Hodges has endorsed in a gubernatorial primary
since leaving office. State Sen. Robert Ford and Superintendant of
Education Jim Rex are also seeking the nomination.
Sheheen thanked Hodges, joking "I think we all know how much better
off we would have been" if Hodges had defeated Gov. Mark Sandord in
