Quotes from the news wire:
John McCain has served John McCain country in many facets and a building named after John McCain makes a lot of sense to me, i think the fact of the matter is a prisoner of war for five years who decides to stay there, someone who served in Congress, served in United States Russell Senate, someone who believed in American exceptionalism. Sounds like a good idea.
One of the things that perhaps we can learn through the political process about bringing people together is to remember South Carolina, remember the families of the nine victims, how they brought a community together during the worst atrocity in our state's history, i am thankful that I live in a country where forgiveness can be seen in the worst of conditions.
For some, that flag represents that history. And for so many others, it represents a pain and oppression. I'm looking forward to our state leaders getting together, and having a robust conversation after the funerals about what's the next step, i am going to make sure that I'm a part of that conversation. My voice will be clear. My position will be stated.
