Here’s the response from South Carolina Republicans to South Carolina Democratic chairwoman Carol Fowler:
SCGOP’s Dawson: Obama & Fowler are eager to smear, not ready to lead
COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Katon Dawson today released the following statement in response to Carol Fowler’s assertion that Sarah Palin’s “primary qualification [for Vice President] seems to be that she hasn’t had an abortion”:
“Carol Fowler’s statement is offensive, outrageous and – most importantly – dead wrong. Governor Sarah Palin is a strong pro-life, pro-family reform-minded conservative with meaningful experience whose message has resonated in South Carolina. Fowler’s statement is born out of desperation from a campaign that is sputtering across the South.
“Carol Fowler should immediately apologize. Her remarks are unbecoming of a party leader and demonstrate poor judgment. Carol Fowler and Barack Obama are eager to smear – not ready to lead.”
