Mark Sanford: The Plywood and Spray-Paint Candidate


See the plywood signs behind Sanford at last night’s runoff-victory celebration? That’s not a mistake; that’s one of the themes of his campaign.

Sanford’s always had pretty solid fiscal-conservative bona fides, and he’s emphasizing how frugal/cheap he is by using leftover plywood for his campaign signs. I suppose the message is, “if he’s that careful with his campaign’s money, he’ll be that careful with taxpayer money.”
