Lt. Gov. Glenn McConnell told The State that he will take the Thanksgiving holiday to decide whether to run for the state’s No. 2 seat or instead concentrate on trying to become president of his alma mater, the College of Charleston.
McConnell said he wants to know which path he will take before the New Year. The 65-year-old Charleston Republican has not started formal fundraising for a re-election bid but has moved money from his state Senate campaign account.
I’m just going to have to decide where my calling is,” he said.
But the College of Charleston’s presidential search committee adopted a timeline this month that has a list of finalists being handed to trustees on Feb. 10, said Greg Padgett, chairman of the search committee and trustees.
