SC Dems Unite Behind Colbert-Busch

Personally, we’d have taken a successful businessman over a superfluous government bureaucrat … but then again we’re not South Carolina’s perpetual minority party.

Palmetto State Democrats have cleared the deck in the first congressional district special election for Elizabeth Colbert-Busch – who draws six figures each year from South Carolina taxpayers doing “business development” for the restoration of a Confederate submarine. Colbert-Busch’s only viable primary opponent – businessman Martin Skelly – will drop out of the race this week and endorse her candidacy.

What’s behind this move? Sources close to both candidates declined to talk to FITS … although it’s clear Democrats believe the star power (and fundraising prowess) of Colbert-Busch’s brother, comedian Steven Colbert, is critical to helping them win this seat.

Colbert-Busch will still have to face a primary opponent, perpetual candidate Ben Frasier, however he is widely believed to be a Republican plant.

Meanwhile on the GOP side sixteen candidates are seeking that party’s nomination for the seat vacated earlier this year by newly appointed U.S. Sen. Tim Scott.

Why waste Martin Skelly’s money in a costly primary. He is much more qualified than anyone else. She is not fit to manage a Bojangles franchise.

So we should vote for her becuase her brother is a comedian? You democrats have high standards. Even a disgraced Sanford has more political credibility than she does.

How could someone with the last name of Busch not do well in SC?
Maybe Messers “Bud” Weiser or “Red” Mann might do as well, though none better.

I’ll vote for anyone who is not led around by the NRA and who has five functioning brain cells. That eliminates everyone on the Republican ticket.

There’s a run-on sentence in the second-from-last paragraph at the commar after “Frasier.” A new sentence should begin with “However.”
