South Carolinas Governor's Race: Nothing too exciting
Benj Buck
May 1, 2006

With nearly 40 days until the primaries, the governor's race seems to be fizzling out--in that the competition seems to be weaker than before.  After Saturday's State Democratic Party Convention, many Democrats left questioning their choices to face Governor Mark Sanford.

A Charleston delegate, Susan Prueter, spoke with The Post and Courier questioning Tommy Moore's progressive ideology.  The Post and Courier article says that Moore claims to be anti-abortion and says he is in favor of a constitutional ammendment to ban homosexual marriages and civil unions in South Carolina. 

As the race continues, The National Journal ranks the governor's races.  Considering South Carolina's race, The National Journal says, "If there were a better-funded challenger, we'd move Sanford up because Columbia's elite seems exhausted with the incumbent.  But they better suck it up because he'll be around another four years."  According to the latest Ethics Commission, Sanford has nearly four times as much funding as his nearest competitor.  Therefore, The National Journal considers South Carolina's gubernatorial race to be a boring 25th ranking.

Just what we need in South Carolina. Democrats in name only. Maybe a Democrat who runs like a watered down Republican can win. Sorry "Columbia's elite." Between you and Sanford, the people like one but not the other. . . .
