COLUMBIA, S.C. - Presidential hopeful Howard Dean is used to taking shots from Republicans and even fellow Democrats on the national level, now he's got to contend with criticism from a former South Carolina attorney general running for senator.

In releasing a television ad Wednesday, U.S. Senate candidate Charlie Condon said Dean is "a real threat to American security."

The "Howard Dean Democrats oppose America taking the fight to Saddam Hussein and terrorist havens overseas. They're just wrong," Condon says in the ad. It's Condon first TV advertisement in a crowded GOP primary race to fill the seat of retiring Sen. Ernest "Fritz" Hollings, D-S.C.

Condon implies that Dean "wouldn't do anything about a threat coming from outside of America," said Delacey Skinner, Dean's South Carolina campaign spokeswoman. "That's just false." Dean has "been very clear about the fact that as commander in chief he'd be willing to do what was necessary to defend the country," she said.
