This piece was sent out by SCRG to help form voter opinions in the very-heated GOP nomination contest for Senate District 25. Clearly the piece is intended to paint Hixon, a long-time backer of Tommy Moore, a long-time Democratic State Senator and current predatory lending hustler, as a RINO extraordinaire:
No doubt the Governor's backers want to make this a referendum on the direction of the GOP, as well as get a final slap at Moore, who challenged Sanford last year, and punish Hixon for being a leading Moore backer.
What is interesting is how they even put an email address on the mailing. While they're hoping those who receive the mail will contact them for details. If so, that's a heckuva a way to stir the pot.
The focus on Hixon's past background with Democrats and his opposition to the Governor is really the first time we've seen this as a central issue in any of the five legislative special election contests that have taken place this year. We'll certainly be interested to see how the issue resonates with voters.
This race prove to be one to watch, all the way down to the last vote is counted next Tuesday, bet on it.
... in the meantime, if you're watching this race and have any more good ones like this come your way, send it along. We might even present it for discussion.
