It’s hard to believe, but all the attention heaped on Rep. Joe Wilson (R-S.C.) is actually overshadowing a big week for another Wilson.

Alan Wilson, a former Assistant Attorney General and Assistant Solicitor in Lexington County, has been touring the state this week, announcing his GOP candidacy for state Attorney General.

Alan Wilson is wrapping things up in the Lowcountry on Friday, but he’ll start his day with an interview on CBS’s Early Show. One can only imagine what they’ll have to talk about.

That’ll be followed by a stop at the Charleston Bagel Co. on Long Point Road in Mt. Pleasant.

He’ll actually be ending the week-long campaign trip at a Summerville/Irmo football game — where, ironically, folks are encouraged to shout at the opposing team from the bleachers.
