Fourth District candidate and Spartanburg solicitor Trey Gowdy was reportedly the victim of mistaken identity in the latest attack in the heated GOP primary battle for this Upstate congressional district.
The other candidates have not commented on this incident, but we suspect an independent party with no connection to any of the candidates was the culprit.
While walking neighborhoods in Greenville yesterday, Gowdy ran into a dog which confused him for a Milk Bone - or maybe Nancy Pelosi - and decided to chew on him a little. Gowdy checked in with the Blogland:
I have nothing but two holes in my leg, some pants that need repaired, and hurt feelings. No pictures. The dog sounded like Cujo but in reality was probably more the size of the dog from the Taco Bell commercials or Paris Hilton's purse dog.
I walked the rest of the road and then spent the rest of the afternoon wondering why in the world I didn't do better in math and science so I could be a doctor or something.
This incident should serve as a reminder that sometimes it takes more than a good message to survive a tough primary campaign.
