Republican governor debate on tap for SC public TV

Columbia, SC - COLUMBIA, SC (AP) - Gubernatorial candidates are readying for the second of two consecutive nights of debates in South Carolina.

Monday night's debate for Republican candidates will be shown LIVE ONLINE on and on ETV stations statewide.

U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett, Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, Attorney General Henry McMaster and state Rep. Nikki Haley are in the debate on ETV's "The Big Picture."

The debate is to take place hours after McMaster releases the results of an investigation into Gov. Mark Sanford's travel and other conduct, all stemming from probes of the governor after he admitted an affair with an Argentine woman last June.

Sanford is wrapping up his second and final term in January.

Democratic candidates debated Sunday night.
