Literal.  I saw and heard about it on an evening news broadcast, but
the page http://voices.washingtonpost.com/thefix/governors/sanford-returns.html
has the following:
On Rachel Maddow tonight, Lt. Governor Bauer said that Governor
Sanford had also been hard to reach during the recent forest fires in
the state.

He said that there was all kinds of property being lost, and that it
"took a while to reach the Governor".

So this is actually a pattern of behavior with Governor Sanford.
