A Contender for Sanford 

Republican Dr. Oscar Lovelace Jr. has decided to challenge incumbent Governor Sanford in South Carolina's gubernatorial election next year. In this article in The State, he calls Sanford "libertarian." As if that's a bad thing.

I'm aware that many Republican politicians in the state are annoyed with Sanford because he refuses to toe the party line. But it's just that independent streak that the people of South Carolina love about him. It's partly what got him elected in 2002, and I predict that it's going to help him get re-elected in 2006, challengers from his own party notwithstanding.
