Henry McMaster’s First “Lite Gov” General Election Ad
WELL … SORT OF
Henry McMaster (a.k.a. “Foghorn Leghorn”) has a new television ad out … except no, not really.
Somebody is having fun with the good ol’ boy, though …
McMaster’s opponent – Democratic lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Bakari Sellers (D-Bamberg) – has released a funny video purporting to show “secretly obtained raw video of Henry McMaster’s first general election TV commercial for lieutenant governor.”
McMaster cruised to the GOP nomination for this office in this week’s “Republican” runoff election – easily besting Mike Campbell, son of former GOP Gov. Carroll Campbell. McMaster was supposed to have faced off against S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s hand-picked No. 2 – wealthy Lowcountry developer Pat McKinney – but he dropped out of the race.
In the web video, a voice actor portraying McMaster argues with an advisor who is having trouble keeping track of all the offices McMaster has sought over the years.
“McMaster has been running for Office since Bakari was two years old,” one of Sellers’ campaign aides told FITS. “He’s been on the government payroll since before Bakari was born.”
