Joining Graham from the 6th district as Republican delegates are Ida Martin of Williamsburg County and Karen Wyld of Jasper County. Alternates include Lori Beard of Colleton, Bob Barnwell of Richland and Chester Palmer of Orangeburg. “Half of our delegation in Cleveland will be women,” Graham said. Graham is hopeful to set a record for serving as a delegate from Clarendon County to the national convention, a record currently held by Gerald Bates, who attended four conventions from 1940-52. “Mayor Julia Nelson is right there with me on the Democrat side, and she just got elected again for the third time in a row,” Graham said. “It’s pretty special for Clarendon County to be able to send two to the National Conventions of each major party.” Graham will have company from his son, Sumter, who was elected as a national delegate in Columbia.
