COLUMBIA, SC — Let the South Carolina gubernatorial arms race begin.
More than 12 hours after Republican Gov. Nikki Haley posted a photo of the Beretta handgun she received for Christmas and received (mostly) social media admiration for her Second Amendment chops, Democratic operative Phil Bailey tweeted a photo of state Sen. Vincent Sheheen, the 2014 Democratic gubernatorial hopeful, with his shotgun.
"@vincentsheheen & me after he kicked my ass shooting skeet with his shotgun he's had longer than I've been living," Bailey tweeted.
Your move Haley camp.
