Come on now, this guy is so obviously flawed he should never, ever have been nominated for this House seat. This is a conservatives district in a southern state, usually characterized by values voters. That they, and others like Erick Erickson, bought into his "second chance" BS is just plain pathetic. Sanford is a tool, a liar and a selfish pig.
Still, as you point out, Sanford is better than some Hollywood lefties Democrat sister. Every conservative in that district needs to vote for Sanford in the upcoming special election, and then work on getting this dirt bag to go away so we can run a good candidate in 2014.
We can look the other way at an extramarital affair, it's a lot harder to ignore the fact that someone's a thief. So the RNC is right (for once) to write off this guy as a loss.
Wrong. This House seat was NOT highly vulnerable. It's a solid Republican district that the Democrats haven't won since the 70's. It's an overwhelmingly conservative district. Like an R+11 or more district.
The reason we may lose here is because Sanford is a selfish jerk and the primary voters are idiots. This can't be blamed on he "establishment", the media or anyone other than the voters who decided to believe Sanford's "give me a second chance" b*llsh*t. If we lose here we will almost certainly retake the district in 2014 - but in the meantime we will have to put up with Stephen Colbert's liberal sister representing a bright red district.
Republican primary voters really need to wise up. No more horribly flawed candidates. No more nominating idiots like Sanford, O'Donnell, Angle, Akin, etc. It's staggering how many seats we just throw away. The Democrats must be laughing at our special election track record.
Sadly, the pubbies eat their own. If we don’t quit waiting for the ‘perfect’ candidate we’ll totally destroy this country!
Well, this is 2013, and it is vulnerable now. We shall soon see how vulnerable.
The district first went Republican for the House in 1980. But I have a bad feeling about the judgment of voters there.
It's ONLY vulnerable because of Mark Sanford. We could have nominated Bostic or any of the other Republicans and won. We could have nominated a yam or a head of lettuce and won. It's only because that tool Mark Sanford managed to fool "values voter" conservatives into giving him a second chance that we are in this mess.
It's not about waiting for a "perfect" candidate. It's about not supporting a candidate who embezzled state funds for personal travel expenses. Are you willing to support any crook as long as there's an "R" next to his name?
“Hi son... meet the woman I decided to destroy our family for.”
Mebbe the kid is punching her too.
now well get a jokers wife instead
That is 100 percent IMPOSSIBLE! It is the jokers SISTER!!!!!

Yes, there are so many other races that need funding....
