RIP Rod Shealy

South Carolina Republicans lost one of their legendary political operatives when Rod Shealy lost his battle with cancer recently.  Shealy was 56, but left his mark on South Carolina politics through his political consulting and newspaper ownership. 

There will be those who will bring up Shealy's more controversial moments, but VUI will not.  Instead, we will simply state that South Carolina politics lost one of the greatest players of the game.  Two sons lost a father and two grandchildren lost a grandfather. 

Prayers and sympathy go out to the Shealy family and friends.  May God comfort them in this time and may Rod Shealy be remembered well.
