SC's Wilson holding rally to answer ad challenge

Oct 19, 2010 4:11:00 AM - thestate.com
U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson is holding a rally for supporters to challenge an opponent's campaign claims that he traveled overseas on junkets.

Wilson's rally at the Statehouse on Tuesday includes state Adjutant General Stan Spears.

On Saturday, Wilson began airing ads that said he dodged mortar rounds on a trip to Afghanistan. That's part of Wilson's description of his summer travel to the Washington newspaper The Hill.

Democrat Rob Miller challenged the ad and noted that Wilson said later in the story that the mortar rounds fell on the other side of the airport and he was never in great danger.
