COLUMBIA, S.C. – With many voters just starting to focus on the campaign for governor and lieutenant governor, James Smith and Mandy Powers Norrell have just released a new, 30-second ad that introduces them to those just tuning in, and reminds others who they are.
A transcript follows:
JAMES: I’m James Smith.
MANDY: And I’m Mandy Powers Norrell.
JAMES: We’re running for governor and lieutenant governor because state government needs new energy and life experience.
MANDY: I’m the daughter of textile workers, and I worked at the mill to pay for college. James resigned his officer’s commission to enlist for combat duty in Afghanistan.
JAMES: When I led soldiers under fire, I put their lives first. But Governor McMaster won’t even expand Medicaid to cover more of our veterans and our families.
MANDY: And he’s failed our schools.
JAMES: We are running to fix it.
