The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) is out with a new ad against Mark Sanford. Yeah, it’s a guy walking the Appalachian Trail.

The ad begins, “Mark Sanford walked out on us.”

And it’s all uphill from there.

Watch the ad here:

According to National Journal, 

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee will launch the new television spot in the district Friday and is spending more than $188,000 to run the ad on broadcast television stations in the Charleston and Savannah, Ga., markets through April 28, according to two national Republican media strategists. The DCCC ad will also run on cable television, but that buy will come through sometime later Thursday.

Meanwhile, Sanford is on his own, in terms of fending off this attack. Yesterday, the NRCC announced they would not be helping him.
