MARK SANFORD OFFICIALLY HAS A PRIMARY CHALLENGER

S.C. Rep. Jenny Horne is officially a candidate for the Palmetto State’s first congressional district – formalizing her intention to challenge incumbent U.S. Rep. Mark Sanford in this spring’s “Republican” primary.

Horne submitted her paperwork to run against Sanford at the S.C. Election Commission headquarters in downtown Columbia, S.C. on Wednesday.

Take a look …

Sanford also filed his paperwork on Wednesday, the opening of filing, saying his decision to seek another term was motivated by his “continued concern over our country’s financial future and the vital importance of preserving liberty and opportunity in the American system.”

Huh? 

Based on his recent votes, we’re guessing what Sanford meant to say is he was motivated to return to Washington, D.C. so he can continue selling out.  Seriously … this guy was once the definition of a citizen legislator.  Now he’s nothing but a corporate whore.

Oh, and a “lovestruck mooncalf.”

Despite his numerous ideological betrayals, Sanford is still a heavy favorite to win reelection.  He’s expected to enjoy a substantial fundraising advantage over Horne, and in the unlikely event he runs into trouble on that front his new “Republican” masters are only a phone call away.

Also, Horne is coming at Sanford from the left … not exactly fertile ground in a GOP primary race (although to her credit she did recently hit him with a nice right cross).

We’ll see if this race ends up getting interesting …

Ummmmm…Kemosabe…let’s see now…in this corner we have Sure-I-Left-My-Wife-And-Four-Sons-Mark Sanford himself

Lied through his RINO teeth about it of course and proved himself to be just ANOTHER libertarian Lilliputian elf

And in this corner we have Jenny-Sure-I’ll-Sell-My-Grandma’s-Jugular-For-An- Office-Horne waxing hypocrite on the flag

Who if the truth be known should go ahead and light up two big batons and find the devil himself and go play…tag

And in this corner we have Andre-Sure-I-Keep-ILLEGAL-Video-Poker-Machines-In-My-Warehouses-Bauer, too

Who like Lexington County’s almost “new” and old sheriffs and Raghead wants to give voters a real good you know…

Finally in this corner we have the First District’s voters who if corn were an enema would make very good shuckers

Because we KNOW they no doubt elected all of the above or wanted to and make perpetual all-day dumb-azz suckers !!!

Sanford is leaving for his Cuban junket with the President on Sunday. Would not be surprised if he brings his friend with benefits, Chapur. They’ll write off any expenses as business. He has gone from limiting his terms in Congress, to stating his new limit is 12 years. “Citizen Legislator” = BS.
Why would he leave the gravy train, that satisfies his narcissitic appetites at the taxpayer’s expense???
Real accomplishment while in Congress???

Real accomplishment while in Congress you ask? How about the last congressman to have an actual bean bag in his office to sleep on?

Right, he’s just like Trump, a loser who shouldn’t be in politics and can’t stay married to someone.

You beat me to it. Between her fugly cry-yelling about her completely fabricated relations to Jefferson Davis on the House floor and the fact that she might be dumber than a ton of bricks, I’ll take the devil I know over her any day. Mark has my vote by default.

More like Sanford is worried about his own financial future.

Another small government faux Republican Libertarian who wants to drown government in Grover’s bath tub…all except the part that pays for his salary, benefits and perks.

I hope she picks up some of the issues from his time as governor like why he left 600 agency and commission board positions unfilled by the time he left office after 8 long years.
Nikki Haley was smart enough to realize she could control SCDHEC and SC Ethics Commission via having the majority of the boards appointed by her. Why and how was Sanford too stupid to know how important those board appointments were?
