Obama campaign announces its South Carolina leaders

Clay MiddletonClay MiddletonThe Obama campaign has announced its leaders in its South Carolina campaign, long-shot though it may seem. Trav Robertson will be the campaign's director, and Charleston-native, Citadel-grad Clay Middleton will be the political director.

The announcement was followed up with the usual PR huff:
“Trav and Clay bring the expertise of state and national campaigns, in addition to years of organizing experience,” Obama campaign manager David Plouffe said. “They will bring an unprecedented general election campaign organization to all corners of South Carolina that will involve volunteers and supporters to be a part of changing the way Washington works. We are inviting South Carolinians to join Trav and Clay in the effort to work for every vote in the Palmetto State between now and November.”
