South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Catherine Templeton touted outsider status and Civil War roots during a campaign speech Thursday at Bob Jones University.
After making waves last year during a speech in Pickens County — where she said she was "proud of the Confederacy" and vowed not to allow Civil War monuments to be removed if she were elected governor — she cited the Civil War again.
“I think it’s important to note that my family didn’t fight because we had slaves,” Templeton said to a room mostly filled with university students. “My family fought because the federal government was trying to tell us how to live.”
