S.C. Chair Questions Romney's Commitment to State

He's continued to plow ahead in Iowa and reinforce his stronghold in New Hampshire. But according to one prominent Republican, Mitt Romney is ignoring arguably the most important state on the primary calendar: South Carolina.
The state's Republican Chairman Chad Connelly told National Journal on Tuesday that the former governor and his campaign have been far too invisible in the Palmetto State.
"I have felt like he just assumed he can't win here," the chairman said. "I think he's going to do much better than he thinks, but if he doesn't get here he's missing a golden opportunity."
