    13 people with good sense, now name the 9 that voted against it so we know who not to vote for when they run.

    The ones who voted against it or abstained or absent are Beth Bernstein, Micajah Caskey, Laurie Funderburk, Jay Jordan, Joe McEachern, Mandy Norrell, Will Wheeler, James Smith, Gary Clary, Richard King, David Weeks and Cezar McKnight a resident of Williamsburg County but his House Seat has part of Clarendon County in it around Santee Dam and Wyboo Plantation. He is a Democrat that represents one of the most Republican areas of Clarendon County due to reapportionment.

    In fairness, Rep. Jay Jordan (R) was attending his Fathers funeral in Florence and in all probability would have likely voted for it.
