PAC launches anti-Sanford media campaign

gsmith@islandpacket.comApril 17, 2013 

House Majority PAC announced Wednesday it will begin a three-week, six-figure media campaign in the 1st Congressional District special election -- and unveiled its first TV ad.

The ad, entitled "Air Sanford," will begin airing today in both the Savannah and Charleston markets. The national Democratic group in the ad hits Sanford for his misuse of the state plane for which he was fined.

Sanford has said the charges were minor. He paid a record fine but has maintained that, had he chosen to fight them, he could have gotten them dropped.
