Mark Sanford: Don’t Call It A Comeback!

Two days after Easter, former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford continued his rise from the political grave … with his “soul mate” at his side for the resurrection.

Two days after Easter, former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford continued his rise from the political grave … with his “soul mate” at his side for the resurrection.

The scandal-scarred former chief executive – whose political career was thought to be over in the wake of a disastrous 2009 sex scandal – claimed the GOP nomination for South Carolina’s first congressional district Tuesday night with a surprisingly big win over “Republican” rival Curtis Bostic. Joining him on stage during his victory celebration? Maria Belen Chapur – his Latin lover turned fiancée.

With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Sanford enjoyed a commanding 57-43 percent lead over Bostic – a former Charleston County councilman with a penchant for big government and tall tales.

2013 GOP FIRST DISTRICT RUNOFF RESULTS

MARK SANFORD – 25,978 (57 percent) *WINNER
CURTIS BOSTIC – 19,944 (43 percent)

That margin surprised us for a couple of reasons …

First, the GOP runoff for this seat was always considered Sanford’s “danger zone” given his high disapproval ratings – even among Republican voters. In fact his consultants acknowledged as much in a story we wrote two months ago assessing his chances. Second, turnout throughout the first district was reportedly very low – which usually benefits a grassroots-focused candidate like Bostic. Also, with endorsements from the likes of Rick Santorum and James Dobson, Bostic had a virtual monopoly on social conservative voters – who don’t do “low turnout.”

For these and other reasons, our founding editor was predicting a narrow Bostic win – even though this website offered a grudging (and controversial) endorsement of Sanford.

Of course the battle is far from over for the “Luv Gov,” who is running to recapture the congressional seat he held from 1995-2001. In fact he’s facing a formidable Democratic opponent next month in the form of Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, sister of comedian Stephen Colbert. In fact a pair of polls taken prior to the GOP runoff showed Colbert-Busch enjoying a slim lead over Sanford in spite of the first district’s strong Republican lean.

“I look forward to a vigorous campaign that focuses on creating jobs, balancing our country’s budget and choosing an independent-minded leader who shares the values of the great people of South Carolina,” Colbert Busch said in a statement following Sanford’s win. “As a businesswoman, I will use my experience to cut waste in Washington, lower tax rates so small businesses can create jobs and do the people of South Carolina proud as their representative.”

Colbert-Busch also wasted no time in punching at Sanford – blasting him for opposing the Violence Against Women Act during his time in Congress.

Her spokesman said that on “issue after issue,” Sanford “doesn’t reflect the values of South Carolina.”

Meanwhile in a statement SCGOP chairman Chad Connelly congratulated Sanford on his win and bashed Colbert-Busch – whom he referred to as “LuLu” – as an  “overpaid liberal educrat who is out of touch with Lowcountry values.”

Looks like the battle is on …

It’s funny to see how serious you take your hatred of me. Hate is a staple of liberalism. It would be nice if you LOVED your country Half as much.
But I have a Wonderful life, and I’m set on protecting it, and my family.
That said: Sanford received the votes. The people (at least those in the morally-dubious SC 1) have spoken. In America, at least w/ Republicans, they are FAIR elections.
Sanford is BAD for the Conservative movement. It’s why FITS is w/ Sanford.
I now must decide if I’ll support a democrat. If she dis-avows Obama, she may begin a transformation of the democrat party away from failure. That would be nice.

While on the subject of penises are you that sure ECB is penis free

I have seen a fair number of photos where she is wearing turtle necks and other clothing that bumps right up under her chin. Could there be an Adam’s Apple hanging around in there some place.

Next time you get close to ECB maybe a Crocodile Dundee crotch grope would be possible and you could post your fondling findings to confirm.

“The families of this district need a representative who they can trust,” campaign spokesman James Smith said. “Mark Sanford simply has the wrong values for our community – whether that’s his terms as Governor or the last time he was in Congress, where he opposed commonsense measures like the Violence Against Women Act, which provides shelters and resources for domestic violence survivors. On issue after issue, Mark Sanford doesn’t reflect the values of South Carolina.”

The PPP poll had a 13 point lead for Sanford over Bostic. At 97% reporting, Sanford is leading by 13.6%.

I wonder if that will earn them some respect from the peaNUT gallery on here.

Of course, PPP also had Colbert Busch leading Sanford by 2. Very close, but obviously winanbale for ECB. No doubt, PPP will do another poll in the coming weeks.

Also of note, turnout is down significantly from 2 weeks ago.

PPP can come up with any liberal poll of SC1 that they want. She can’t get enough votes to win:
1.Yes fewer voters turned out (44,000) in runoff than pub primary (55,000).Typically that happens in runoffs and add the fact it is spring break for most. That is still 3x the number of votes that Colbert received in dem primary and Sanford HIMSELF received 10,000 more votes in runoff than Colbert got in dem primary.
2. If the base is the 70,000 votes in (using total from primary) for May 7 and Sanford starts with 25,000 and Colbert 15,000 she would need to win almost 70% of the republican primary voters,a very conservative block of voters.
Not a chance.

It will be a tough race, but is winnable by either side. Sanford has been known to stick his foot in his mouth, and that can always happen again.

55% of registered voters in SC-1 are women, and Sanford polls even worse with them.

PPP nailed the runoff DEAD-ON. That is extremely impressive for a special election. Most pollsters don’t even risk their reputation by polling special elections.

Sanford only picked up 6,000 votes with 14 opponents eliminated. Not impressive in my book.

Public Policy Polling is a scam inspired by a scam, Aristotle, Inc.. All they do is find your phone number from state voter lists. They are the problem, not the answer.

This victory is especially sweet due to the fact that the working class with kids are on Spring Break this week. Sanford won with over 26,000 votes out of 46,000 total cast. Dick needs 50,000 to just be even on May 3rd. Good luck with that.

Sanford will be the next Representative for SC-1

For a scam, how did they nail it on the head? Why don’t you back up your BS with some facts/?. PPP is the most accurate pollster in the country is the truth.

Can anyone really be surprised by a state that made Newt Gingrich its choice for the GOP primary?

SC luvs them some adulterers, at least in the primaries!

If the people of the lowcountry put this low life back into office, god help us. This man has done nothing to earn public trust. He abused his office, pilfered taxpayer money, which he would not have returned had he not been caught, and ditched his children for his mistress on father’s day. He is corrupt rich white trash, whose contempt for the public he was elected to serve knows no bounds. If he had not had the Republican elite to protect him, Sanford would be in jail. A commoner certainly would be, and Sanford would be the first to prosecute.

For those of you who say I am supporting him because he will vote for low taxes. Is your vote that cheap? For a few bucks you are willing to put a man into office who is thoroughly corrupt, has stolen from you once, doesn’t give a crap about anyone but himself, and who will cement further the growing national view of our state as a joke?

People who vote for this man, or support this man, are either corrupt themselves or stupid dupes.

I am not a supporter of ECB. I am not a voter in that District. But I am a resident of South Carolina, and I care who represents our state. I have however rethought my assessment of the people who would support Sanford. They actually fall into three groups; those who would receive financial gain from his election, dupes, and the thoroughly uninformed.

Don’t live in the district so as a non-voter, I would not have voted for Sanford in the Primary or run-off. He was a failure as Governor and I don’t believe in awarding people new jobs when they’ve failed at the last one. However, a vote for Colbert-Busch is a vote for the Obama agenda. That makes this an easy decision to work the phones and etc., with friends and family towards support of Sanfraud. I may even send him a check depending on how the race begins to unfold.

You really have to ask, who is Elizabeth (kohl-BURT’) and why is she here. She seems to have been pushed into this. (kohl-BURT’)’s opponent, Martin Skelly, suddenly dropped out of the race. Why? He is a solid example of living the American Dream. A self-made man, Mr Skeely says,”I know that when we work together, Americans can solve any problem. Our challenges are significant — but our ability to overcome is never in doubt.”

And he is a Democrat? He seems to be one the few Democrats that are not part and parcel to the Socialist-Radical Wing of extreme leftist throwbacks calling themselves Democrats. Why did he drop out? Was he pushed out? By whom?

A casual search for (kohl-BURT’) shows she is married to Claus W. Busch III. He is one of us, hard worker, donates his time and treasure. Did he ask Mr Skelly to dropout? I would think a primary would rally Democrat voters, get them to the polls, and support their candidate on May 7th. Was Mr Skelly really asked to dropout to save money on a primary? Makes no sense since a primary is healthy. Who picked (kohl-BURT’) and asked Mr Skelly to drop out?

Upon further casual research, Mrs (kohl-BURT’) has three children. Mary Legare
Middleton, Robert Walker Legare, Jr, Catherine Ann Legare. Legare? Was there a divorce in her past? Middleton…Middleton…MIDDLETON! The Middleton who signed the Declaration of Independence for South Carolina? THAT Middleton? Arthur Middleton’s family of today? Is this about South Carolina’s people in SC-1 or Charleston’s Old Money in SC-1?

I think we are getting warm. Could Mrs (kohl-BURT’) have been offered a chance to run that she could not refuse? Is she backed by the Charleston Middleton’s? Is her candidacy really about SC-1, jobs, taxes….or them?
