    On Tuesday, a Public Policy Polling survey showed Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch in a virtual tie with likely challenger Mark Sanford in the special election to fill South Carolina's vacant House seat. Busch led Sanford 47 percent to 45 percent, just within the poll's 2.9 percent margin of error.

    The poll also found Busch tied, at 43 percent, with Curtis Bostic, her other potential foe for the May special election. Bostic and Sanford will go head-to-head in a Republican primary run-off next week, a contest Sanford is heavily favored to win, despite having left the governor's office in disgrace after his bizarre extramarital affair came to light four years ago.

    That Busch is performing so well may come as a bit of a surprise. The seat in question, representing South Carolina's 1st District, is reliably red. It hasn't been held by a Democrat in more than 30 years, and Tim Scott (R) last November won re-election there with 62 percent of the vote — double what his Democratic challenger received. (In December, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley (R) appointed Scott to fill a vacant Senate seat, prompting the special election.).....snip~

    Stephen Colbert's sister could stun Republicans and win a House seat - The Week

    So does anybody think Colbert's sister can win this House Seat? Do we have any from SC that is up on this situation?

    Why did the Southern Cons allow this Putz to run for the House Seat? This is what I have brought up in the past about Southern Cons trying to make moves without checking with others. Why would you even Risk this House seat over this Douchebag?

    What did we tells ya? The Rest of us that lean Right autta come down there and smacks ya upside the head.

    Ya'll best not lose that seat. Otherwise we gonna have to make ya an offer ya can'ts refuse.
    This is why I think the Republicans are a bunch of bloody wankers. Mark Sanford. And they wonder why they going to lose the seat. Holy **** batman Haley appointed that putz to the senate? Oiy Vey!!

They complain the liberals and liberal leaning folks just don't bother doing any research/thinking before voting.

    If this isn't proof that Republicans don't seem to do much thinking before they vote in a solidly GOP district not sure what is. They see the name, pretty sure they have heard of him before, something pretty important... but somehow can't recall what a flaming nut job he is?????
    Unfortunately it looks EXCATLY that way. And we bitch about change. We have the government we so richly deserve.

    From the article it looked like Mark Sanford, if I am not mistaken.

    No. She did not appoint Sanford to the Senate. She appointed the African American Congressman for whose Congressional seat Sanford is now running.

    Yeah, what do those Republicans know that say “Majorities are elected to do things, and if they become dysfunctional, the American people will change what the majority is,”.

    Ha! You have a peculiar notion of what precarious means ~

    "Only 19 percent of Americans approved of the job Republican leaders did on the issue, while 48 percent said they approved of Obama’s handling of the negotiations, according to a Pew Research Center poll.

    A poll by conservative-leaning Rasmussen — taken Dec. 30, at the height of the fiscal-cliff drama — showed Democrats with an 11-point lead over Republicans in the generic congressional ballot. Though the gap has narrowed this month, Rasmussen found deep dissatisfaction among GOP voters with the party’s congressional leadership: Sixty-three percent of Republican voters think it is out of touch with the base."
