Ten months to the primary, fifteen to the general election, and I saw a TV ad for McMaster tonight for the Gubernatorial race.  It was an Augusta station, so unless he's running it elsewhere, it might have been a test ad, to see how it does. (Augusta's the smallest and hence cheapest TV market that serves the state.)

Was not impressed by the ad.  His main point was that since Obama became President, South Carolina has lost 39,000 jobs, and McMaster is the man to bring them back.  How an Attorney General is supposed to be such an expert at job creation wasn't explained.  The fact that under Sanford, South Carolina has significantly trailed the nation in job creation is conveniently forgotten.  Why you should pick McMaster over any of the other Republicans not even hinted at despite the fact that he'll have at least one major primary opponent in Barrett, with two if Bauer runs.  (I can understand not attacking Barrett by name at this point.  It's too early to go on the attack, and Barrett might not be his major threat by the time the primary rolls around.)

Maybe the ad will work with those who don't follow politics closely, but the sheer hubris of the ad made me laugh out loud.

I'm down in SC for the week visiting my parents who just moved to Indian Land (less than 1/2 mile over the NC border).  I haven't seen any ads here, but being in the Charlotte media market, its much more expensive and most of the market is in NC anyway.

I'm pretty set of supporting Nikki Haley. I'm not sure why, but I like her politics. I'm waiting for Bauer to enter the race. If the GOP nominates him, I may look at the Democrat's candidate.

I am supporting Haley as well.

I'd love for Bob Conley to come back to politics, but I'll probably end having to vote for the lesser of two evils.
