Why are leading Republicans legislators in South Carolina focusing more on fundraising than in years past? They fear their own party's governor, Mark Sanford. The Post and Courier explains:
Rumors of a legislative "hit list" have been around so long it has become a Statehouse legend -- an almost mythical sheet of paper said to hold the names of state lawmakers Gov. Mark Sanford wants to get rid of, at least politically.
Sanford insists no such list exists, but he makes no secret of the fact that he has, and might again, endorse challengers to incumbents with whom he disagrees.
No one at the Statehouse disputes the governor's right to campaign for or against whomever he wants; but they fear that political action committees friendly to Sanford's causes, and operated by his friends, are recruiting opponents with the promise of out-of-state campaign funding.
It is enough to make everyone, no matter how comfortable, take notice.
I love the phrase "at least politically." What's that supposed to mean?
