Posted: Updated:

In the Lowcountry, Democratic candidate for South Carolina Governor Vincent Sheheen hosted a meet and great on Tuesday night in Ridgeland.

The event allows all voters the opportunity to personally meet Senator Sheheen and learn about his platforms.

Sheheen said he plans to focus more on education if elected as governor.

"I see simple solutions that we have to focus on and demand," he said. "Number one is making sure we have early childhood education. We should have universal 4-K in every county, including Jasper County, just like Georgia has. That's a simple solution, one that's too far not occurred in South Carolina, and number two is making sure the dollars go in the classroom, and that's my focus really is on teacher page"

Sheheen faces current South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley in the November election.
