Former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford’s campaign took an interesting turn last weekend … into the wrong congressional district.
According to WCSC TV 5 (CBS – Charleston, S.C.) Sanford spent his Saturday making several campaign stops “in the first district” – including a visit to the fifth anniversary block party for The Barbecue Joint in North Charleston, S.C.
The only problem? The Barbecue Joint is located in the state’s sixth congressional district, which is represented by U.S. Rep. Jim Clyburn.
Hmmmmm … is there something Sanford isn’t telling us?
Sanford has committed several unforced errors since officially announcing his return to politics earlier this year, however he’s still expected to make the GOP runoff for the first congressional district seat vacated earlier this year by Tim Scott, who was appointed to the U.S. Senate by Gov. Nikki Haley.
Can he win the GOP nomination though? That remains to be seen … one thing we do know is he doesn’t need to add a navigation problem to his preexisting trust problem. Remember what happened the last time this guy got lost …
