Sparks fly during S.C. gubernatorial debate

South Carolina's seven gubernatorial candidates met for a family-values-themed debate Tuesday as the campaign entered its final three weeks. The Republican half of the twin 30-minute debates started with sparks based on state Rep. Nikki Haley of Lexington's first gubernatorial ad hitting the air Tuesday. In it, Haley criticized one opponent for voting in favor of the federal bank bailout. Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer was also pressed on his claims of ending "generational welfare."
