“Mark Sanford may claim to be a fiscal conservative, but as governor he flew around the world in high style – even jetting to the dentist and a hair dresser – and stuck South Carolinians with the $400,000 bill,” said Andy Stone, Communications Director for House Majority PAC. “The list of Mark Sanford’s transgressions, hypocrisy and duplicity is lengthy – but South Carolina voters’ memories are just as long.”

The Sanford campaign and the South Carolina Republican Party launched a negative TV spot today.
