St. Louis Congressman Richard Gephardt heads south as he courts Democrats for his bid for the White House. Gephardt has travelled to South Carolina, taking with him a message of redirecting tax cuts to health care and a stronger homeland defense. The former House Minority Leader has also been critical of President Bush, saying the Chief Executive is “inexperienced and has no curiosity,” adding, “He is not up to the job, and needs to be replaced.” Gephardt’s visit to South Carolina is seen as an early effort to seek the support of grass-roots activists and prominent politicians. Gephardt filed papers forming a presidential exploratory committee on Monday.
