Joe Cunningham Releases Statement on Passing of Senator Hugh Leatherman

Today, former Congressman and Democratic candidate for governor Joe Cunningham released the following statement regarding the passing of South Carolina Senator Hugh Leatherman:

“Today, South Carolina lost a giant. Senator Leatherman spent his entire adult life fighting for our state and the people of Florence County and we are all better off because of his service. Few people have had a more positive impact on South Carolina than Hugh Leatherman. He was more than just an ambassador for the Palmetto State; he lived the values that everyone in public service should strive to uphold: compromise, bipartisanship, and putting people over politics.

My deepest sympathies are with the entire Leatherman family, his Senate colleagues, and the people of Florence County. May his remarkable legacy live on forever.”
