They’ve landed every big name in Palmetto politics except one – but that could be changing.

Dutch Fork (S.C.) High School’s “It Kids” are working hard to get Gov. Mark Sanford to pay a visit to their current issues class, which thanks to the efforts of teacher Kelly Payne has become the Palmetto State’s preeminent destination for political talk.

Judging from the looks of it, a few of them “ain’t too proud to beg,” either.

Will it work?

“The governor would certainly like to visit at some point,” said Sanford spokesman Joel Sawyer, just one of the South Carolina political luminaries who has spoken to the “It kids.”

If Sanford is able to make the trip, count on FITS to bring you a complete report.
