First question to Gov. Nikki Haley: What steps should the state, next governor take to keep state from falling behind economically
Haley: Focus will continue to be to put as many people to work as possible.
Sheheen: I think we need a governor who will shoot straight with us. Only 50 percent of jobs Haley announces 'actually show up' #scgovdebate
Haley rebuttal: Just because you say something doesn't make it true. Hundreds of people have been hired.
Sheheen agrees with Haley, says 'numbers she's been feeding us just don't add up. Truth is we have seen declining incomes.' #scgovdebate
Question 2: Should union jobs be welcome? Sheheen: Don't want government getting between employers and employees. #scgovdebate
Ervin: Haley promised to be transparent, accountable but she's been nothing of the sort. 'You've given away the farm ...
French: I'm running as libertarian because I have a consistent philosophy. Federal funding comes with strings attached, don't need unions
French: I look at jobs like I look at sex. You shouldn't brag about it if you have to pay for it. Yes, he said that. #scgovdebate
Haley: We're a strong right to work state because we don't have unions. Sheheen was quiet when federal government sued over Boeing.
Question 3: What does the state have to do to make sure we meet retirement obligations to state employees?
Ervin: Haley has turned her back on state employees time and time again. She waited until election to give them raise. #scgovdebate
French wants a strong third party to take on Democrats and Republicans. #scgovdebate
Morgan Bruce Reeves: I'm a candidate that has 0 amount of money in my bank account. I will double salary of any fireman, any school teacher
Haley: Exactly why we passed retention reform the first year we were in office. #scgovdebate
Sheheen: we have paid out a lot of money in fees, being spent out of state. Haley appointee sending those dollars all across America
Sheheen now responding to Haley's Boeing comment, says she wasn't present to vote when Boeing game during Sanford term #scgovdebate
French: Calling ethics reform ethical is like calling Obamacare affordable. It's just a word they put up there, an illusion #scgovdebate
Ervin: Broken promises. Both Sheheen, Shaley promised to build I-73. You know what? We don't have an Interstate 73. #scgovdebate
Sheheen: Our state government thoroughly corrupt. If we want ethical government we need government leaders, needs to start at top
Haley: Ethics reform a part of everything I've done. Now they vote on the record on everything. ...#scgovdebate
Haley: Sheheen voted against ethics reform twice. ... I was found not guilty on all of the plane stuff #scgovdebate
Sheheen: I will never vote for a fake bill. And points out she was fined for violations. #scgovdebate
Question: Do you support marijuana for medicinal use, how about recreational use? French: Yes. #scgovdebate
French: We need to decriminalize marijuana. Spend more to incarcerate than to educate. #scgovdebate
Ervin: I support medical marijuana, helps children with seizure disorders, veterans with PTSD - as long as prescribed by physician
Ervin: But first let's wait to see impact on Colorado. #scgovdebate.
Sheheen: Cites twin 18 year old boys who might be watching: I don't think decriminalizing marijuana will help economy. Back to business ...
Haley takes a dig at Sheheen being a trial lawyer. #scgovdebate
Question: Is it time to bring up the flag again?
Ervin: Surprised Sheheen brought it up before election. More important issues #scgovdebate
Ervin: I'm the only one on the stage with a plan to fix roads and bridges. #scgovdebate
Sheheen on flag: People of SC tired of having an image that's not who we are, that we're stuck in the past. #scgovdebate
Sheheen: Time to retire flag to place of respect. #scgovdebate
Haley: Talk to a lot of CEOs about jobs and haven't had one bring up the Confederate flag.
Haley: SC perception fixed when she was elected, when Tim Scott was elected. Implies Sheheen's stance on flag is political. #scgovdebate
Morgan: I'm the only one on the stage who has ever built a road. #scgovdebate
Morgan for the second time tells us he played in the Hall of Fame Bowl. #scgovdebate
