Update June 2:

Democrats Vincent Sheheen, Jim Rex and Robert Ford faced off in a nearly 30-minute candidates forum Tuesday evening in West Ashley where topics of discussion ranged from job creations, education, abortion to pay cuts.

Missed watching it television last night? Live News 5 has a two-part video gallery of the debate on their site.
