MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. - Teddy Turner inherited his love of sailing from his father, media magnate Ted Turner. But there is less of a family resemblance when it comes to politics.
While the elder Turner leans Democratic, Teddy Turner is running as a Republican in a crowded race for an open South Carolina congressional seat created by a U.S. Senate appointment.
Said the younger Turner: "My dad has been asking for years, 'How the heck did you become so conservative?' "
Teddy Turner, 49, is one of at least 10 Republicans and two Democrats running in the March 19 party primaries in this coastal district.
