Former S.C. Attorney General Charlie Condon has joined the S.C. leadership team of Republican Tim Pawlenty's presidential campaign.
Condon, who was attorney general for terms before launching an unsuccessful gubernatorial bid in 2002, said he thinks the former Minnesota governor had the best chance of unseating Democratic incumbent President Barack Obama.
"There is no question in my mind that he is the best candidate we have, and the right man to put our country back on the right track," Condon said in a press release. "Pawlenty's strong fiscal record during his eight years as governor of Minnesota proves that he is able to produce real conservative change amidst tough circumstances."
Condon, an attorney in Charleston, joins U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson, R-Springdale, in co-chairing Pawlenty's S.C. campaign. Condon previously was John McCain's S.C. presidential co-chair in 2008.
"General Condon is a respected leader throughout the state, and I am looking forward to working with him as he helps to lead this campaign to victory," Pawlenty said in a press release.
