10/7/05: SC, ARK governors tour Charleston health fair

S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford and Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, both mentioned as presidential candidates and who both push healthier living, were in Charleston Thursday at a health fair, according to The (Charleston) Post and Courier:

The health fair was the first in a series of visits Huckabee is making to various states to learn about efforts that could be copied across the country. Huckabee said he visited South Carolina first because the Healthy South Carolina initiative fits that profile.

Huckabee is widely believed to be a potential 2008 presidential candidate, and South Carolina's early presidential primary is considered key for any Republican hopeful.Health care is a vital issue for many governors, including Huckabee and Sanford, who are struggling with the skyrocketing growth of Medicaid, the state-federal health program for the poor. States are looking at increasingly drastic measures for stopping that growth.

Great blog I hope we can work to build a better health care system as we are in a major crisis and health insurance is a major aspect to many.
