Candidate For Congress Shoots For Certain Crowds With New Political Ad

One woman running for a seat in the 5th Congressional District of South Carolina is apparently going to pull out both barrels for her campaign. Her television ads are already causing quite a stir. While liberals are appalled by the ads many conservatives are applauding.

Republican candidate Sheri Few is vying for the seat once occupied by Mick Mulvaney, the president's pick for Office of Management and Budget. Few jumped right into the race with ads outlining her views. She introduces herself to her prospective constituents in an ad where she stands in front of the American flag holding a rifle.

Few slams 'weak politicians' for blaming tragedies on things like a flag, or a gun, and she says America need leaders who won't panic. She's urging conservatives to vote for her so that she can move their agenda as quickly as possible.

In another campaign ad, Few slams lawmakers for trying to erase all hints of confederate soldiers from American history. "Now they're renaming streets and colleges and destroying monuments to confederate soldiers," Few complains, saying it's 'time to stand up' and fight political correctness.

Few is one of six candidates running for the seat in the special election, planned for May 2nd. According to the polls, Few isn't doing very well. She's trailing behind S.C. Speaker pro tempore Tommy Pope, who a survey shows has about 19 percent of the vote and S.C. Rep. Ralph Norman, who has about 11 percent. Few currently has nine percent.

Of all her opponents, however, Few is definitely getting a lot of buzz over her controversial ads. Some liberals have attacked the candidate as going for the 'Dylan Roof' campaign strategy.

Roof is the gun-toting, Confederate flag-wearing white nationalist who opened fire in a black church in 2016.

Conservatives who are tired of political correctness and who strongly support the Second Amendment see Few as a breath of fresh air, however. Her campaign team warns that she shouldn't be counted out yet-- her ads will be heavily running until the election.
