Billy Dale McCants, my son, was in a car wreck Nov. 12, 1988. I met the then-16th Circuit Solicitor Tommy Pope in 1995 for the trial of the two men that murdered my other son, Deputy James Brent McCants, killed in the line of duty Sept. 25, 1992.
Tommy and his wife, Kim, are the best people I know. They really care for people. You become their friends, and they are yours.
Tommy became speaker pro tem of the S.C. House in 2014. Now he is running for the 5th District congressional seat.
