    Trump’s Catholic Tweets A peculiar article suggests Catholics at the White House don’t like them. An odd article by the Catholic News Agency (CNA) appeared this week, alleging that Catholics at the White House resent Trump’s tweets touting “two figures with polarizing reputations among Catholics: former papal nuncio to the United States Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, and the author and online polemicist Taylor Marshall.” The title of the article is, “Why White House Catholics are concerned about Trump’s Catholic tweets.”“White House Catholics” apparently refer to a couple of opportunistic Never Trump-style Catholics who snuck into the White House and are...

    Former Attorney General Charlie Condon won Monday's Charles-ton County Republican Party straw poll of candidates in next year's U.S. Senate race, but the name of potential candidate David Beasley kept cropping up. Many party members said Beas-ley should get in the race, despite the baggage of losing the governor's office in 1998 after one term. "I would think he'd be the real front-runner," Republican Vickie McCoy said at Monday's county convention, where long-time GOP activist Cyndi Mosteller was elected party chairwoman, defeating Charles Steinert. Condon, of Sullivan's Island, collected 152 votes in the straw poll of the four Republicans running...

    The Republican primary contest for the U.S. Senate seat held by Democrat Fritz Hollings promises to be a real doozy. Just the presence of former state Attorney General Charlie Condon, who has earned the reputation of being a political street fighter, makes it interesting. "I like my chances," the Charleston native said. Condon, no shrinking violet on the campaign stump, cannot be dismissed. He has a loyal following among Christian right activists, who make up a good hunk of the GOP primary electorate. He also enjoys solid support in the Lowcountry. Condon believes there is strong sentiment out there for...

    Washington John Spratt: Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in '04? Don't count on it. Though S.C. Democrats relish the idea of the experienced York congressman running if U.S. Sen. Fritz Hollings, D-S.C., doesn't, Spratt says he is U.S. House bound. There Spratt is an acknowledged heavyweight -- in seniority, in position and for his voluminous knowledge of the federal budget. "Who me?" he says when asked about a Senate run last week. "No. I have 21 years of seniority in the House. I sit one chair away from the chairmanship of Armed Services, and I'm the ranking member on the...

    U.S. Sen. Fritz Hollings has told the South Carolina Democratic Party it's OK to conduct popularity polls to help evaluate possible successors. Although Hollings has not ruled out running again in 2004, he told state party Chairman Joe Erwin that his preference is for someone else to step forward and that the party should launch polling to determine strength and name identification. "I think it's a sign that the senator really does want to see if there is a strong credible candidate, or candidates, willing to take the risk of running," Erwin said Monday after speaking with Hollings via telephone...

    U.S. Sen. Fritz Hollings is fast reaching the point when he must let the South Carolina Democratic Party know whether he's going to run. Time is growing short. The party needs to start shopping for a candidate soon if he's not going to seek re-election. Whoever is going to run needs to start raising money now. Estimated costs for a statewide campaign are somewhere between $6 million and $8 million. While Democrats are waiting for Hollings to decide, Republicans are lining up to run for the office. They are raising money, signing up supporters and getting organized. So far, four...

    <p>I was going to write today about a housing proposal in the North End for grandparents raising grandchildren. It's a well-intentioned but loopy idea that would in essence create another public housing project - haven't we tried this? - and take the neighborhood's only open space in the process.</p>
