Just got off the phone with General Paul X. Kelley, former Commandant of the Marine Corps, who was a very good friend of Gov. Carroll Campbell.
He told me:
“Carroll and I had many long conversations about law enforcement, and I don’t know that anyone ever, ever had the same grasp of law enforcement and how to implement it that he did. In South Carolina, he effectively brought all law enforcement agencies together for a common purpose. He was a consensus builder in the purest sense, and I don’t know of too many other leaders who possessed those same skills in that regard.”
