The three Democrats vying to become governor of South Carolina are meeting on the state's coast to debate how best to help the state's economy.
State Superintendent of Education Jim Rex and state Sens. Robert Ford and Vincent Sheheen meet Thursday evening in a debate at Coastal Carolina University in Conway.
The Republican candidates were in Florence earlier this week to discuss the same issue.
The debate is being televised by WBTW-TV and by C-SPAN, the national cable television network.
It's the third debate this week for the Democratic contenders. They appeared in a Charleston television forum on Tuesday and debated in Spartanburg on Wednesday.
