More on Possible Third Lite Gov Candidate
While a lot of you boys out there might wish it was The West Wing's Allison Smith set to mount a third-party challenge to Dre' Dawg (a.k.a. Andre Bauer) and Robert Barber in the South Carolina Lite Governor's race ... it's not.
The rumored candidacy has generated wild speculation out there in the S.C. blogosphere, however, and more than a few of you submitted your guesses today into the FITS' mailbag.
Here is a smattering of some of the more popular speculations:
-Carroll A. "Tumpy" Campbell III
What's really interesting is the obscene amount of attention this race gets given its limited and largely ceremonial role in state government.
Ninety-percent of the media coverage these past two weeks predictably focused on the Lite Gov's race, but when you stop and think about it, the office itself is nowhere near as powerful as the "other" race decided on Tuesday, the battle for State Treasurer.
Andre may be getting all of the ink, but we here at FITS theorize it's T-Rav who really knows how to roll.
