Governor Sanford related in Op-Eds and letters that he sees the state debt as a major priority that ultimatly will help the state overcome the recession and stimulate job growth
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Governor Mark Sanford will be getting a little more airtime on South Carolina's cable television networks next week, but the media attention won't necessarily be positive.
The Democratic National Committee will begin airing an ad criticizing Sanford for not accepting all of the funds allocated for South Carolina under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The 30-second ad will begin airing on Monday on cable television in Columbia.
The ad says Sanford is "playing politics instead of doing what's right." Earlier this week, Sanford denied he was rejecting the money for political reasons.
