The season of political endorsements is here with South Carolina candidates announcing lists of backers daily.
But be wary of those endorsements.
Six of 40 state lawmakers Sen. Vincent Sheheen listed as endorsers of his gubernatorial campaign last week say they are not endorsing him.
At issue is a press conference Sheheen's campaign held March 4 at the State House. Flanked by several Democratic lawmakers, Sheheen spoke of the growing momentum of his candidacy as campaign workers handed out to the media a list of 30 House representatives and 10 senators who were supposedly endorsing the candidate.
But six of the listed Democrats, including a couple who were standing with Sheheen during the press conference, have since said they aren't in Sheheen's corner.
