I attended my first political rally this evening. We both got invitations in the mail to a BBQ to support Tommy Moore, Democrat candidate for governor of South Carolina. Little did I know it was a Republican gathering. I should have known, though. Since Laura and I tend to vote in the Republican primary, we’re often labeled as such, though we tend to vote Democrat in the general election. The only redeeming factor was that all of these Republicans were pulling for a Democrat over the incumbent, Mark Sanford. Still, it felt weird.
Regardless, I was glad I went. We met a couple of neighbors, and there was some BBQ. Moore voiced what many of those in attendance felt, that Sanford is devisive and has no clue about how to govern. Furthermore, Sanford seems bent on undermining public education. This seemed to be of concern to Moore, as he said that "the assault on public education would end."
