AIR DATE: June 25, 2009
Governor James Edwards went from a relatively unknown oral surgeon from Charleston to the first Republican elected to be South Carolina's governor since Reconstruction. This Big Picture special looks at the life and career of Governor Edwards.
And on The Big Picture on the Radio, we will talk with former chief of staff to Carroll Campbell, Bob McAlister; Brad Warthen, formerly of The State newspaper; and Winthrop political science professor Scott Huffmon about the future of Governor Mark Sanford.
