… AGAINST MARK SANFORD

|| By FITSNEWS || Eager to cash in on her fifteen minutes of fame from last week’s contentious debate over the Confederate flag, S.C. Rep. Jenny Horne is making plans to run against U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford for the Palmetto State’s first congressional district.

Multiple sources have confirmed Horne’s intention to challenge Sanford – who won a special election for this seat in 2013.

What a race, right?  Two emotional wrecks who have zero use for the truth … one a longtime fiscal liberal (Horne), the other a recent convert to the dark side (Sanford).

“Forget a runoff, will there be a cry-off?” one Palmetto politico joked, referring to Sanford’s tearful 2009 confession of an extramarital affair and Horne’s emotional speech calling for the removal of the Confederate flag.

Yeah … really. Is it too much to ask for a grown-up to run for this seat?

To say nothing of a supporter of freedom and free markets?

In addition to his ideological betrayals on a host of issues (most recently, Obamatrade), Sanford’s return to office has been marked by all sorts of fresh personal drama.  He’s been a disaster on all fronts, in other words … but should he be replaced by Horne?

Eh …

A longtime fiscal liberal and staunch supporter of South Carolina’s failed government-run school system, Horne has represented S.C. House District 94 (which includes parts of Charleston and Dorchester counties) since 2009.  She was reportedly in line to receive a judgeship after her aggressive (and ethically questionable) lobbying on behalf of corrupt S.C. chief justice Jean Toal back in 2014.

That plan has since fallen through …

“Crying is good for the national media,” one GOP legislative leader told FITS.  “Not so good for judicial temperament.”

With her judicial aspirations officially kaput, sources close to Horne tell us she debated whether to run against Sanford or join a crowed field for governor of South Carolina.

Guess she’s made the call … although it’s worth pointing out the former doesn’t necessarily preclude the latter.  If Horne runs and loses to Sanford she could still conceivably run for governor in 2018.

Assuming these are the only two options on the ballot for next spring’s GOP primary, we weep for the citizens of the first district.  Seriously: They deserve better – and we need better in Washington, D.C.  Much, much better.

Of course we’re not going to lie: A Sanford versus Horne matchup would literally explode our servers, driving tons of traffic to our website.

Beginning with the 2012 election, the first district has run along the Palmetto coastline from the Georgia-South Carolina border up through Charleston County – areas where Sanford has historically done well at the polls.  It also includes a big chunk of rural Berkeley and Dorchester counties, which is Horne’s backyard.

Take a look …

Colonel, whoever Is doing these memes should look ahead. If Horne beats Sanford in the election, the meme could be him sitting in a buckboard wagon, straw hat tilted back, shoulders hunched down, and looking at the ass-ends of TWO JENNY’S pulling his wagon..!!

My favorite respond ever on the Maury Povich Show was by a black male to a black female accusing him of being the father of her child. The guy was standing in front of the picture of the child, and then pointed to the child’s face and proclaimed, “That can’t be my child, he ugly, he bald headed, his eyes are too far apart, he look like a damn Ethiopian.”
He WAS the father.

Even with Mark Sanford being Mark Sanford, Jenny Horne doesn’t have a snowball’s chance of beating him.

Two Jenny’s would split the anti Mark vote and likely result in either a runoff or a straight up win for the “Luv Gov”.

This redneck cow can’t make it past 4pm without a drink. It’s pretty well-accepted by those familiar with her at the statehouse that she’s an alcoholic. By the late hour of her “speech” – she was drunk. She’s one of those women who cry when drunk – and yes, it’s an ugly cry. We’re all just lucky she didn’t wet herself in the process. Please, please let someone run and get elected who won’t embarrass our state.
