Recently, Columbia attorney Dwight Drake threw his hat into the SC gubernatorial ring, announcing his run for the Democratic nomination. (Someone please tell our current Governor that just because it's called the "gubernatorial" office does not mean you have to be a "goober.")
Drake is challenging State Senator Vince Sheheen for the nomination. Sheheen has been full-time campaigning for quite a while, lining up donors and, in our opinion, getting more comfortable in the role.
Getting to the point...I got an email from Drake last week asking me to sign a petition to call for Sanford's resignation. Now, it looks like Drake is using Sanford as the foil in his campaign ad, which in all candor, is pretty good.
