Nancy Mace Launches TV Blitz

While the “Southern Charm” of possible independent U.S. Senate candidate Thomas Ravenel has been dominating political discussion in South Carolina (and beyond) in recent weeks, another Lowcountry politico is quietly stepping up her challenge against liberal U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-S.C.)

Nancy Mace – viewed by many as the most electable GOP alternative to Graham – launched her first television advertisement this week in the “Republican” primary race, scheduled for June 10.

“I learned at young age that things worth doing are never easy,” the first female graduate of The Citadel military college says in the spot. “I’m running for the US Senate to fix the mess created by career politicians.”

Mace’s TV spot comes two weeks after she debuted her first radio ad – which was much more critical of the left-leaning policies advocated by Graham.

This spot is all about introducing her to voters …

“As a businesswoman, I understand that economic opportunity and individual liberty are at the heart of America’s greatness,” Mace says. “As a wife and mother, I believe we must fight for life and liberty to preserve the future for the next generation.”

Take a look …

Mace’s campaign declined to provide details on the size of the buy, where it was running or its expected duration.

“Our campaign doesn’t discuss tactics or strategy,” Mace campaign manager Marissa Lynch told FITS. “I will tell you we have a very cost effective TV plan since we do not have the $7 million Sen. Graham has raised from DC insiders like Henry Paulson and Henry Kissinger.”

Mace is one of five GOP challengers to Graham in the June primary. The others are S.C. Sen. Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg), Columbia, S.C. pastor Det Bowers, Upstate businessman Richard Cash and Orangeburg, S.C. attorney Bill Connor.

She has fared better than her rivals in fundraising, pulling in close to half a million dollars in contributions in just over six months of active campaigning.

God bless Nancy Mace. She is taking on an incumbent whose policies are threatening the way of life here in the U.S. Lindsey Graham’s policy on Amnesty alone would bring in 30 million uneducated, desperately poor, illiterate people who would be a huge burden on the American taxpayer. I can think of much more constructive ways of using the hard earned money of American taxpayers then paying for welfare, Section 8 housing and providing free healthcare. The American people are looking for work at any level at this point and they deserve to bring as much of that money home to their families as they can.

Does she smell as good and feel as soft as she looks?
She doesn’t look like the average Republican skank in those pictures… mAnn Coulter, for instance… is it like meth? It takes some time before their body starts showing the ravages of Republicanism?

She’s OK – but I prefer Latin. Where’s Sanford’s love squeeze these days. We need more pics of her – if for no other reason than to get the ex-wife all screechin’ again. Good times those are.

Other than in Sic Willie’s puerile brain, where is this “story” dominating political discussion in SC?

She looks like T-Rav in drag on the clip. The two pics look like different people. Has anyone seen Lee Bright? He must be saving his $7000 for one big 30 second splash.

I must second this. I prefer a woman who doesn’t cake on makeup, but I don’t think Mace is the worst offender.

Dear Marissa Lynch,

I did a quick search on Facebook and Linked In and YOU, my dear, do not seem to be very transparent. You can do what you want but in my book its not very “positive”. As for this campaign spot, you are giving Mace the same problem that Toni-Connor Rooks has in her campaign to be mayor of Folly Beach. Just look at this comment section. What does it tell the campaign advisors of the rest of the field..? (S.C. Sen. Lee Bright (R-Spartanburg), Columbia, S.C. pastor Det Bowers, Upstate businessman Richard Cash and Orangeburg, S.C. attorney Bill Connor.)

Ya know, Marissa, I had a chance to sit down with various women last night and guess what their views were concerning this next election cycle..? Dare to guess what their Mace campaign memory relations were like..?

I highly wager SMIRKS can tell you exactly what type of memorable address this campaign spot has.

Marissa, do you want Nancy Mace to win an election or not..? Obviously, there a few boys crowding the field to ensure she gets the “elevator treatment”.!!!! Marissa, you have been crowded in an elevator full of men before haven’t you..?

Just for reconfirmation…..I asked various women here at SPAWAR Atlantic of what they thought of this spot. What do eye-rolls tell you..?

Marissa…………dare to wager what “boy” in Pickens or Lincolnville or Duncan or Woodruff would think…?

Marissa………..get busy…..!

One thing I wish Nancy Mace would do is to sign the pact with other candidates that if one of them is in a runoff with Lindsey, she will throw her support behind that person, even if it isn’t her. There have been some disturbing rumors floating around that she is a spoiler, working to Lindsey’s greater good. I don’t wish to believe them, but her signing the pact would make a lot of people, myself included, feel better.
