    Poll: Sanford vs. Colbert Busch too close to call

    Republican Mark Sanford and Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch are in a dead heat in their South Carolina race for Congress, as a new poll shows the embattled ex-governor erasing a deficit as voters make their final decision Tuesday.
    The poll by Democratic-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP) shows Sanford leading Colbert Busch by 1 percentage point, or 47% to 46% among likely voters. South Carolina's 1st District is a GOP stronghold, but Sanford has portrayed himself as a underdog as he fights for redemption after an extramarital affair in 2009 derailed his once-promising political career.

    Amazing because according to the so called experts Sanford was 9 points down just two weeks ago....

    Oh I am sure that will go over just fine....pfft! Bunch of cheaters liberals are....

    (Reuters) - The Justice Department will monitor voting in Charleston County, South Carolina, in Tuesday's special election to fill a House of Representatives seat, the department said on Monday.
    Former South Carolina Republican Governor Mark Sanford is facing Democratic newcomer Elizabeth Colbert Busch, sister of television political satirist Stephen Colbert, in the First District House race.
    The Justice Department said in a statement it was monitoring the election under provisions of the Voting Rights Act of 1965. The law bars election discrimination on the basis of race, color or membership in a minority language group.
    The department did not give a reason for the monitoring. Tuesday's vote will take place under South Carolina's new law mandating photo identification for voters, and Justice Department monitors observed primary elections.

    Oh so now the Obama administration is going to make sure that no lib is left out....And I am sure when they announce that Colbert-Busch won, in a district that reports a substantial amount more republicans than democrats, it'll be nothing to see here.....

    Go easy on him. Excuses and conspiracy theories is all he has left.

    I think he probably was. He's run a good campaign the last few weeks trying to tie Colbert-Busch to the national Democrats.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    Actually depending on the state, it's fairly common to be listed a couple of times if you have cross endorsements. When I lived in NY, there was a guy who was Mayor of Buffalo named Jimmy Griffin. He was actually a Democrat, but the party heads hated him so he had to run in a primary every time. He was also cross-endorsed by the Republican party (because Democrats hated him), the Conservative Party (they had their own line) and the Right to Life Party. So after winning the Democratic primary, he was listed by everybody BUT the Liberal Party, who usually endorsed the guy who lost the Dem primary already. When I voted there in the '96 Presidential Election, Bob Dole was listed by 3 parties and Bill Clinton twice.

    Oh so now the Obama administration is going to make sure that no lib is left out
    I know. Making sure people vote. Just terrible....we shouldn't listen to voters we should just listen to the Republican Party.

    Right-wing resistance to attempts at increasing voter turnout always turn the stomach a bit.

    The fact that conservatives would vote for the freakish Sanford is so telling.

    No level of weirdness will keep tea party types away. Indeed, it attracts them.

    How's that Argentinian soul mate thingie working out for SC conservatives?
