The paint had not even dried on Tuesday's primary, and in preparation for a runoff election in the South Carolina governor's race, Republican candidate Gresham Barrett has already taken aim at rival Nikki Haley in an ad.

Barrett's ad takes place at a "campaign boot camp," where Barrett tells a drill sargent that he's an "honest conservative" who will shake up Columbia.

However, the ad also calls Barrett a "Christian family man who won't embarrass us."

Nikki Haley was born a Sikh, but converted to Methodism, which fueled a race-driven diatribe by a state senator. She was twice accused of having an affair in the closing weeks of the campaign.
