MSNBC's South Carolina Debate Expert Might Not Have Watched The South Carolina Debate

Damn, bro.

Huck PAC director, and former Executive Director of the South Carolina Republican Party, Hogan Gidley appeared on MSNBC's Now to give his expert take on Monday night's debate in South Carolina between Mark Sanford and Elizabeth Colbert Busch. It wasn't pretty:

GIDLEY: "The fact of the matter is she missed huge opportunities to take apart Mark Sanford's professional record...the fact that our port (Port Charleston) was second in the world when he took over — I think it fell to 12th under his leadership because he refused to do anything about dredging down there."

The fact of the matter is that Colbert Busch did hit Sanford about dredging Port Charleston. Twice:

COLBERT BUSCH: "I'd like to make note that Mark Sanford, my opponent, voted against dredging the port, voted against the bridge, and voted against everything. And he was the only congressman to do that.."


COLBERT BUSCH: "When we talk about the role of government, creating conditions and infrastructure to support that growth, I want to remind everyone again, and Mark, you voted against the bridge, you voted against the dredging, you voted against job training, and all of those things are needed for job creation.."
