Turner's ad encourages voters to 'break up' with career politicians

info@islandpacket.comFebruary 26, 2013 

In what some are calling the funniest TV ad thus far in the 1st Congressional District race, candidate Teddy Turner targets former Gov. Mark Sanford and four other candidates he calls "career politicians."

"I'll keep my promises this time. It'll be different. I'm sorry for all the mistakes I've made," says a slick-looking politician in the ad, sipping a glass of brandy by a roaring fire. The line is a jab at Sanford who, in his first TV ad and in media appearances has apologized for a 2009 extramarital affair.

The ad also encourages votes to "break up" with four other "career politician" candidates: Sen. Larry Grooms, R-Berkeley, Rep. Chip Limehouse, R-Charleston, former Sen. John Kuhn, R-Charleston and former Charleston County councilman Curtis Bostic.
