SC Dems to demolish sand sculpture of GOP candidates

Posted: Updated:

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) - The First in the South presidential primary is over, and some South Carolina Democrats are ready to go pound sand.

The Democratic Women of Horry County group is planning a Monday ceremony in which members will dismantle the Myrtle Beach sand sculpture depicting six Republican presidential hopefuls.

The sculpture was a prominent feature of the Jan. 16 GOP debate, and took over 700,000 pounds of sand to make.

Sally Howard, president of the group, estimates it will take several hours to remove it. She says the demolition is just a sign of relief that South Carolina can get back to normal now that the primary is over.

As part of the ceremony, the group will also make a charitable donation to Mothers Against Violence, a group committed to reducing local crime rates.
