Liberal Politician James Smith Starts To Panic As South Carolina Dem Gov Primary Turns Ugly

South Carolina Democrats continue to grow more divided...

South Carolina Democrats continue to grow more divided as Perennial Candidate Phil Noble steps up his attacks on Liberal Politician James Smith. Reports have emerged that Smith is “panicking” following a poll showing him losing to Noble and “someone else” in the Democrat primary, leading him to push his allies in the state legislature to “give his candidacy a boost” by offering him the party’s State of the State Response.

But unfortunately for Smith, his selection to give the Democrat response is drawing intense criticism from Noble, who called the move “inappropriate,” saying it would give him “an unfair and improper advantage” in the race for governor. The Post and Courier reports that Noble also continued to label Smith as a political insider, claiming these “types of insider relationships are precisely why South Carolinians are so angry at state government.” For months Noble has attacked Smith for his time in the state legislature, accusing him of “sitting idly by” while remaining “part of the system for the past 20 years.” With South Carolina political scientists warning that Democrats must be completely unified with “no bad blood” to win in November, their party’s growing divisions don’t bode well for their chances in the coming general election.

The Post and Courier has more: 

A Democratic candidate for South Carolina governor is complaining that the selection of state Rep. James Smith to deliver the party’s response to Gov. Henry McMaster’s State of the State address will give Smith an unfair advantage in the primary.

Charleston businessman Phil Noble, who is running against Smith in the Democratic primary, accused State House members of attempting to boost Smith’s candidacy by picking him for the role.

‘These types of insider relationships are precisely why South Carolinians are so angry at state government,’ Noble said…

In 2006 and 2010, Democratic legislators running for governor were not chosen to give the State of the State response.
