Democratic lawyer and businessman Mullins McLeod jumped in the 2010 South Carolina governor’s race, saying he was confident he can win despite the state’s Republican leanings.

“Unfortunately, some of our statewide Democratic candidates in the past have not run at the Republicans,” McLeod told the Charleston Post and Courier “They’ve tried to imitate the Republicans, and I think that’s why we lost. I’m going to run a modern, 21st century campaign that focuses on the issues that matter.”  

McLeod sent a letter Wednesday to delegates to the South Carolina Democratic party convention, which takes place this weekend, confirming his candidacy.
