SC-1: Larry Grooms Goes Live

S.C. Sen. Larry Grooms (R-Berkely) is the latest Republican to join the (television) fray in the crowded race for the Palmetto State’s first congressional district.

S.C. Sen. Larry Grooms (R-Berkely) is the latest Republican to join the (television) fray in the crowded race for the Palmetto State’s first congressional district. The fiscal conservative favorite in the race launched his first ad – entitled “Different” – via what his campaign referred to as “a saturation buy on cable and broadcast” in the district.

“Sure all the candidates for Congress are talking conservative, but only one has the record to back it up,” Grooms’ ad states. “Our senator, Larry Grooms – business man and proven taxpayer hero – a champion for jobs, defender of our values.”

Here’s the spot …

Grooms’ ad also references his strong support for the Second Amendment – a hot topic in the wake of U.S. President Barack Obama’s “War on Guns.”

The point of Grooms’ ad is unmistakable: In a race full of talkers, he’s a doer. And his reference to being a “defender of our values” is a clear shot at former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford, who launched his own television ad earlier this week.

Grooms is one of sixteen Republicans seeking the GOP nomination for the first congressional district seat vacated earlier this year by newly appointed U.S. Sen. Tim Scott.

I am tight with Jesus, it’s like that… oh I am without sin, no baggage, except those votes I traded for campaign contributions and that coastal kick-back thingy.

Teddy Turner is the opposite of his dad, whereas Sanford is Ted Turner Sr. Lite.
Not to mention: FITS is trying to Sink teddy…so he must be the Conservative in the race.
FITS saying anything nice about Grooms does not help Grooms AT ALL w/ Tim Scott Conservatives…
Sanford and Kuhn are already DQs based on their past…

I voted for Haley over Sheheen. she won. And Gingrich, who I voted for in the SC GOP Primary, won it.
And how many others now wish we’d have let loose Newt on Obama…Don’t know if Newt would have won, but he would have Beaten the livin’ $#!* out of Obama in the debates. He would have called out your savior for the Dirtbag he is…Can you imagine Newt’s ads…(I can only dream)…
And you lowlife Pieces of #*#* no doubt voted for Obama and he got his @$$ kicked in SC. So did Sheheen. Not to mention I was right (already) about Obama’s abject failure, again…
So you might need to STFU about trailing after loser after loser.

Big T you only endorsed and predicted Newt would win AFTER

you predicted victory for and supported Michelle Bachmann,

and Donald Trump

and Rick Perry

and Herman Cain

and after Newt crashed and burned,

you predicted victory for and supported Rick Santorum

when Romney final won the nomination, you predicted he would win in a landslide.

You don’t know shit about politics, so STFU.

See that orange railroad engine model on his desk? Given to him by CSX. Grooms is chairman of the senate transportation committee that approves all board appointments to the ports authority. Grooms has done nothing to prevent Haley from pulling off the “Savannah sellout”.

Whats the point of saying that engine was given to him by CSX? That is a
model of a Pickens Railway engine [http://www.pickensrailway.com/] a
privately owned shortline railroad operating in the upstate. If you think he is playing favorites in the Class 1 Railroad game, think again.

What’s your point about the engine being given to him by CSX? First off that’s not even a CSX engine, that is a model of a Pickens Railway locomotive (www.pickensrailway.com/) one of several privately owned short-line railroads across SC. Second, so what if it was given to him by CSX (which I seriously doubt it was)…Grooms clearly isn’t playing favorites in the Class 1 Railroad game (see Port of Charleston Dual Rail Access debacle)
