Christie Gives Up on 2016 South Carolina

promoted by Rosi

One of the most important states for someone seeking their party nomination for President is South Carolina because of it’s early primary, the first in a southern state.  In 2000 George W. Bush solidified his position by winning it (with rumors spread about John McCain’s child and fidelity), and Newt Gingrich surged into frontrunner status there in 2008.

Since Chris Christie is a northern Republican, a win in South Carolina would be huge. He’d have an even shot at Iowa, and a pretty good hold on New Hampshire. Three wins in a row would overcome most concerns about his electability.

Which is what makes the new ad the Republican Governor’s Association (of which Christie is chair) is running against the Democratic nominee for Governor in South Carolina all the more troubling for Christie.

“Remember this guy, Sheheen? Well first, Sheheen supported much of Obamacare. But then he refused to support the lawsuit to stop it,” the ad says. “Now, Vincent Sheheen wants to use Obamacare for a $2 billion expansion of Medicaid in South Carolina.”

It ends with the ominous text: “Vincent Sheheen’s Plan: Even More Obamacare.”
