A student in the senate
McElveen adjusting to life as a new South Carolina lawmaker
With Courson
McElveen's wife, Brownyn, recently joined him after a Senate meeting to talk with President Pro Tempore of the Senate John Courson (right).
Before his election to the S.C. Senate last November, Thomas McElveen was used to a fairly commonplace routine. Each morning, he would commute only about a mile down the road from his house to start the workday at his law office on Calhoun Street in Sumter. All that changed though with his victory over Republican Tony Barwick in the general election last fall.
