So I drive by the statue of the three "North Carolina" presidents in front of the North Carolina Capitol about every week or so now. I like the statue, but it is always a difficult conversation to have with guests about why North Carolina would spend money to honor three people who were living in Tennessee when they were elected.
Which just makes me wonder when we hear that a person born in South Carolina but raised here will throw himself into the ranks of the already growing presidential primary field. Everything that I hear around town is that he is certainly running, but there has been no official announcements yet. Any thoughts?
