From AP: Outgoing Democratic Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton has a new job, although not the one he had hoped in November to land come January.
Dalton said Thursday he would teach a class on Southern politics starting next week at Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, not far from his hometown of Rutherfordton. The attorney also said he would serve as special counsel for now to school president Frank Bonner.
Dalton was a state senator for 12 years before getting elected lieutenant governor in 2008. Dalton's successor – Republican Dan Forest – gets sworn in on Monday.
