S.C. Gov. Haley, senators face election challenges

Mar 30, 2014

The filing deadline for state and federal candidates running in this year's elections in South Carolina is at noon today. It's already clear that incumbents will face primary challengers.  Governor Nikki Haley is again being opposed by state Sen. Vincent Sheheen in a repeat of the 2010 gubernatorial race. Six Republicans, a Democrat and a Libertarian have filed to oppose U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham, while a Republican and two Democrats have entered the race against U.S. Senator Tim Scott, who has never run in a statewide election.

At first glance, Davidson looks like one of those quaint, picturesque towns fit for a postcard.
So a homeless man sleeping on a bench outside a church immediately stands out.
Look a little closer, and you may realize it’s a sculpture of Jesus. Yes, a Homeless Jesus.
The sculpture has sparked a lot of debate since it was installed a week ago.
It’s also received national and even international attention.
