— Harvey Peeler's principled mission to put an end to declaring official state symbols, animals, "whatevers" hit a snag last week when Peeler's effort was suddenly at odds with the political prowess of a third-grader.

The S.C. House celebrated Amanda Loveday, former S.C. Democratic Party executive director, getting a new job with U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn, D-Columbia. (The move means she won't be so focused on zinging state Republicans anymore).

News from the U.S. Senate race includes state Sen. Lee Bright, R-Spartanburg, getting to know Dave Feliciano, the Spartanburg cop who made waves briefly on the campaign trail for U.S. Senate.

Bright said of speaking at length with Feliciano: “I was impressed. I could see his heart. There’s a lack of that in politics. He was a guy that wanted to do something.”
