Then, we'll turn to the special election in South Carolina. Voters choose Tuesday between Republican Ralph Norman and Democrat Archie Parnell. The winner replaces Mick Mulvaney, who resigned to become White House budget director. We'll be joined by political science professors Scott Huffmon of Winthrop University and Susan Roberts of Davidson College.

Greg has been with WFAE since 2008, all as news director. He came to WFAE from West Virginia Public Broadcasting. In his eight years there, Greg had roles as a reporter, editor and producer. He was the executive producer of a television newsmagazine and news director for radio and television when he decided to head south for Charlotte.
