going on right now. wilson is a lesser known candidate from chicago... he lost the chicago's mayor race in 2015 to rahm emanuel. he hasn't been included in any of the democratic debates so far because of his polling numbers.. and has not made it on to some state's ballots. hillary clinton continues a busy schedule through the palmetto state. earlier today, she made an appearance at sc state university. following the event, we had a chance to interview her one on one. one of the issues we spoke about was gun control. "there is absolutely no reason to have a worry at all about taking people's guns away. i want to work with responsible gun owners to keep guns out of the hands of people who shldn't have them i ithe first place. i feel so strongly about this because i've just met with so many people i know trayvon martin's mother. i know so many people who have lost loved ones, sending off your first grader to go to school--getting a call in

with stops all over the state. bill had stops in five points, aiken, and bluffton today. hillary was in orangeburg today. bill capped off a long day of campaigning fororillary yesterday in winnsboro. there he told the crowd that hillary will "make america whole again," playing off of donald trump's slogan, "make america great again." he told those voters that hillary will help reform law enforcement by calling for more community policing initiatives. he also talked college and explained hillary's plan which the campaign says is much more sustainable than sanders' more expensive plan. hillary's plan calls for debt free tuition, free college for those who need it most, and the ability to refinance student loans at lower interest

i'm hillary clinton and i approve this message. her church taught her to do all the good you can... for all the people you can... for as long as you can... after law school, she could have joined a high priced law firm... but instead, she worked to reform juvenile justice in south carolina... exposed racism in alabama schools... registered latino voters in texas... and provided legal aid to families in arkansas. her life's work has been about breaking barriers. and so would her presidency. which is why, for every american who's not being paid

dui after crashing his car about a mile away from his lexington home. it is myers' third alcohol- related charge in a little over ten years. myers claims someone ran him off the road when he was on his way home following one drink at a local restaurant. the 70- year-old says he was given a ride home, but did not know who got him there. the responding trooper reported smelling a strong odor of alcohol in the vehicle and seeing a pistol on the floor. myers failed a field sobriety test in his garage, his breath sample registered .09 blood- alcohol level. that was two hours after he called to report the accident. in 2005, the solicitor pled guilty to driving while intoxicated after being stopped in his county- owned car while attending a

in asheville. the results of two blood-alcohol tests were above the legal limit. after that arrest, myers said: "it is my belief that a person should accept responsibility and be held accountable for his or her actions. for over 30 years, i have argued for accountability of others in some of the most heinous crimes our state has seen. this principle applies even more to me." then, in 2012, he was stopped for swerving and traveling in the middle of the road. a trooper spotted a cup of scotch in his vehicle, a drink myers claimed was not his. he admitted to having drinks, but couldn't take part in a field sobriety test due to recent surgery. he pleaded guilty to having an open container. despite the 2005 dwi conviction in north carolina, the most recent charge will be considered a first offense because it's been more than ten years

david longstreet's six- year-old daughter was killed by a drunk driver in 2012. he is leading an effort to get myers to step down. sot "it is a highly sensitive subject but it comes to the citizens of this community that we've got to stand up and say our leadership should be at a high standard ethically and this is not a behavior that's becoming of that." mr. myers, you have been a pillar in the community for decades, but three charges for alcohol- related offenses have damaged your reputation. if you choose not to step down now, do yourself and the circuit a favor and pull out of the race in november. you've held the office since 1976. accept responsibility and hold yourself accountable. that's my take, what's yours? a company that operates farms in lexington county has pleaded guilty in federal
