|1. South Carolina House votes to remove Confederate flag
|After more than 13 hours of debate, the South Carolina House voted 94-20 early Thursday morning to remove the Confederate flag from statehouse grounds. The bill now heads to the desk of Gov. Nikki Haley (R), where she is expected to sign it quickly. “It is a new day in South Carolina, a day we can all be proud of, a day that truly brings us all together as we continue to heal, as one people and one state,” she said in a statement.
