Camden’s town plan ‘Revolutionary!’

We can thank William Penn of colonial Pennsylvania fame for the plan of Camden! By the time that Joseph Kershaw moved to this area in 1758, Philadelphia, Pa., was three quarters of a century old. Penn developed and published plans for Philadelphia, our country's first capital, between 1681 and 1683.

Primaries

The S.C. Republican Party has withdrawn from a federal lawsuit that would close the GOP's primary only to members of the party. The state organization didn't do that because it opposes the suit but because it doesn't want to spend the money.
