    over last night's election. I haven't seen this level of disappointment in a long time. Many express the desire to leave SC for bluer pastures. I think Democrats in the state got their hopes up after the first poll and momentarily forget that this was South Carolina after all.

        I go back often and most of my family and many friends live in Charleston. This election felt different for everyone, and they were so hopeful. I do believe the change can happen in the South, but it will be slow and steady with baby steps, and I guess 45% for the Democrat is more than previous percentages.

        I know for a fact how hard it is to be progressive, liberal, and live in the South. You are doing the hard work in the trenches with not a lot of positive reinforcement. Hang in there!
