Add the name of former Greenville County Democratic chairman William “Billy” Webster to the list of Palmetto Democrats eager to sign on with any presidential run by Arkansas Gov. William Clinton.
Webster, as a member of the South Carolina Democratic Leadership Council, has been a supporter of developing Democratic candidates and issues acceptable to moderates in the South.
He was obviously pleased with the turnout of 125 people at a recent meeting in Columbia.
“That’s the first time in a long while I’ve been in a room with Democrats where it’s been hot,” he quipped.
