Democrat Smith stumps in IL

At his first campaign stop in Lancaster County, Democratic gubernatorial candidate James Smith introduced himself to about 100 attendees Thursday night with a story about 9/11.
“We all remember where we were on that day,” said Smith, an 11-term S.C. House member from Columbia. “I had the chance to visit Ground Zero, and it just assaulted all the senses, sight and sound.”

While he was there, crews removed a victim’s body from the rubble.
