DAVID M. BEASLEY
Signing as Governor, posed in front of US and South Carolina flags
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To M. Lea -/Best wishes/David M. Beasley/Governor of South Carolina". B/w, 8x10. David M. Beasley (b. 1957) first won election to the South Carolina House of Representatives as a Clemson junior in 1976. By 1995, he was Democratic Majority leader, the youngest majority leader in the country. Switching parties, Beasley was elected Governor as a Republican in 1994. He was defeated for re-election four years later, having alienated liberals by opposing all-day kindergarten, conservatives by removing the Confederate flag from the capitol building, and business interests by attempting to ban video poker machines. He sought the US Senate nomination unsuccessfully in 2004. Beasley is chairman of the board of the Center for Global Strategies, and a member of the board of the Peace Research Endowment. Removal of the Confederate flag may have cost him the governorship but earned him the JFK Profiles in Courage Award in 2003. Ink note (unknown hand) on verso. Fine condition.
