SC governor hopeful Joe Cunningham stumps with running mate Tally Casey in Columbia

The afternoon rain let up just as Democratic nominee for governor Joe Cunningham arrived at the Hunter Gatherer Brewery at the Hangar where more than 100 people had come to hear him speak.

Without the aid of a microphone he brought his message of legalizing marijuana and sports betting, and his promise to veto any legislation that bans abortion in South Carolina if he were elected.

"I trust women to make their own healthcare choices," he said, receiving cheers from the crowd.
