Editorial: SC can’t afford to lose Courson’s leadership in Senate

WE DON’T buy the parochial notion that voters in Senate District 20 should re-elect John Courson because his new role as president pro tempore is good for the district and for the Midlands, which has gone a century without a legislative leader. They ought to re-elect him because having him in the Senate’s top post is good for our state.
