State Education Superintendent Jim Rex has spent the past few days touting the endorsement of several dozen district superintendents, including Charleston’s Nancy McGinley.

Today, Vincent Sheheen unrolled his own long list of high profile supporters and, like Rex, they’re coming from his own bullpen in the Statehouse.

Local names include Reps. Leon Stavrinakis, David Mack, Robert Brown, and Vida Miller, as well as Sen. Clementa Pinckney.
