New Teddy Turner Ad in SC Hits Career Politicians: “Sugar, Would You Give Me One More Chance?” – Video 2/26/13
Here is a new ad from Republican Candidate for Congress in South Carolina, Teddy Turner. The ad mocks career politicians, as Turner runs in a crowded GOP Primary for the seat left open when Rep. Tim Scott was named to fill the U.S. Senate seat vacated by Sen. Jim DeMint. The ad urges voters to “break-up” with the career political types – which include former SC Gov. Mark Sanford – by using a greasy-looking actor who says to voters – “I’m sorry for all the mistakes I’ve made. Sugar, would you give me one more chance?”
The ad is a not so veiled swipe at former Gov. Sanford, who recently ran an ad seeking the 1st Congressional District Nomination in which he tells voters he has made mistakes.
Turner is a high school economics teacher, and the son of Ted Turner – CNN founder. More than a dozen candidates are vying for the GOP Nomination. The primary is March 19.
