Scoppe: Katrina Shealy v. Jake Knotts: no good option in SC Senate rematch

The SC Senate race between petition candidate Katrina Shealy and Republican Sen. Jake Knotts comes down to this: One candidate backed by deep-pocketed out-of-state interests that want to take over our Legislature to enact their destructive, extremist agenda, another backed by a home-grown, rogue industry that nearly did that once already, and is trying to make a comeback. A likeable challenger with some good ideas who supports terribly destructive, unworkable approaches on two of the most important subjects the Legislature deals with. Or an obstructionist who opposes long-overdue reforms but who won’t do any harm on education or tax policy . The SC Senate race between petition candidate Katrina Shealy and Republican Sen.
