    Ex-SC Gov. Sanford back in political office

    Ex-SC Gov. Sanford back in political office

    Former Republican South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford revived a scandal-scarred political career by winning back his old congressional seat Tuesday in a district that hasn't elected a Democrat in three decades.

    The comeback was complete when he defeated Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert. With 87 percent of the precincts reporting, Sanford had 54 percent of the vote.

    too ****in funny to see this level of partisan blindness.

    The only oddity was how many people fell for the delusion that a Dem had a chance.

    Which only shows how sad and divisive partisans have become. So much for the whole diatribe during the Clinton years the GOP threw about about how "Character matters!!111111!!!!!" Guess not.

    I think she did have a chance. I think she really was ahead for awhile until Mark Sanford started to aggressively tie her to the national democrats and also began to get endorsements from people like Jim Demint and Ted Cruz.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    The Clinton issue was never character; it was lying under oath.

    Have you ever been to that district? A Repub will win Harlem before a Dem wins SC1.
