Faircloth Targeted

Republicans participated in a massive opposition research drop on Sean Faircloth tonight, A.J. Higgins reports. No knock-out blow, but several examples of him allegedly exaggerating his record and one situation where he may have gotten too close to a legislative issue where his wife had a stake. The fact that he allowed his law license to lapse for several years while he was serving in the legislature and teaching college was also reiterated.

The story states that the Republicans may nominate one of his Democratic competitors against him if he wins the caucus' nomination. No word on if Brautigam or Mills would accept such a nomination (would they have to? - I don't know the full process) and no on-tape response from Faircloth to any of the charges.
