The governor's book tour, combined with the giddy media speculation over her possible veep nod, plays into a Democratic narrative of a governor not only out of touch with South Carolinians, but also spending too much time out of the state.

"It means she cares about her national ambitions more than about governing South Carolina," Jones said.
