Monday's campaign round-up

 ·  Steve Benen, Maddow Blog

Today's installment of campaign-related news items that won't necessarily generate a post of their own, but may be of interest to political observers:

* With just two weeks to go in South Carolina's congressional special election, VoteVets Action Fund has a new ad, slamming former Gov. Mark Sanford (R) for having abandoned his post to meet up with his mistress. "If I had abandoned my post, I could be court-martialed," retired National Guard Colonel Barry Wingard says in the ad.

* The VoteVets commercial comes on the heels of a similarly tough ad from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, which spent $205,000 in airtime last week.
