DNC targets Sanford in new TV ad

From NBC's Mark Murray
In its first TV ad since Barack Obama became president, the Democratic National Committee is highlighting South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford's (R) opposition to millions in stimulus funds for his state. 

"South Carolina is facing tough times," the ad goes, "but Gov. Sanford is playing politics instead of doing what's right. Turning down millions in recovery act funds, putting politics ahead of health care, jobs and schools."

A source says the ad will run for at least a week on cable in South Carolina.
