A Democratic operative in South Carolina responded to South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley's (R) tweet highlighting a Beretta PX4 Storm pistol she got from "Santa" with a gun photo of his own.
South Carolina Senate Democratic Caucus Political Director Phil Bailey tweeted out a photo of himself and state Sen. Vincent Sheheen (D), who is running against Haley in 2014, with a shotgun.
Bailey also tweeted a photo of Sheheen shooting.
The tweet came a day after Haley wrote her own tweet about her new pistol, which was a Christmas gift from her husband.
"Our family had a wonderful Christmas together!" Haley tweeted Thursday. "I must have been good Santa gave me a Beretta PX4 Storm."
Haley has a concealed carry weapons permit. Sheheen is also a gun owner, according to South Carolina's Post and Courier.
