She got the nomination from two different (in name only) parties.

Charleston will come in last and take him out. They vote until she wins.

It seems like being on two party ballots could hurt her, since it could reduce her numbers as a democrat.

I actually want to see Sanford lose this. He’s a scumbag.

This seat will flip back next year. No damage can be done between now and then.

If the Sanford wins, they have a poster boy for next year.

If the moron wins, she better cherish every moment of her experience as she has next to no chance of holding the seat next year.

Weird,it seems like a candidate could find ways to manipulate such a situation, especially among uninformed urban voters, by running different campaigns on different party platforms.

You're a fool. That's worse than being a "scumbag" (hint: maybe half of Congress commits adultery, possibly more). You don't let filthy communist pigs win ever, period. If the voters don't like Sanford they can turn him out in the next PRIMARY.

No question that Sanford would have my vote. As Buckley said many times: vote for the most conservative candidate that can win. Colbert is a member of the Democrat party...enough said.

Charleston and Dorchester are the only counties reporting so far. Sanford should have a lot of strength in Beaufort (military presence, Bluffton, Hilton Head). Romney won there with 58.2%.

I just hope that Sanford, if he wins, doesn’t spend any more tax payer money on trips to Argentina. I think it is best for his family that he wins and ends up in Washington DC. His family has suffered enough putting up with his crap. His poor kids had their father break into the house. Let’s put them out of their misery and send him to Washington. That is the main reason I want him to win. He will be the main topic for 2014 with out party but we should be able to overcome it.

No but he will be in court on Thursday for trespassing charges. Those are the facts. After he is found not guilty (I don’t see how he can explain himself) then the House can bring him up on Ethics charges. Isn’t that just great? We have dug ourselves another hole. We seem to love losing it appears. 2012 was bad enough but if we lose because of this deeb in 2014, what have we really won?

The comeback was complete when he defeated Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert. With 87 percent of the precincts reporting, Sanford had 54 percent of the vote.

Personally facts are what matter. All I care about is that he does not make himself the main topic of 2014. He was all over the liberal stations this morning. Hopefully he will vote conservative but their is no proof of that.

He voted conservative when he was in Congress before.

Hate on him all you want for adultery but insinuating he’s suddenly a RINO is dishonest and disgusting.

I don’t hate him for adultery. I find it disappointing that he used tax payer money to go to Argentina to get his rocks off.

So it wasn’t even close, almost 10 points.

I am relieved ladies and gentleman.

BTW I didn’t know SC had fusion voting. Colbert had the working families party ballot line as well.

Megan McCain is upset, she tweets:

“Really republicans? We’re gonna get behind Mark Sanford and claim gay couples will ruin marriage. This is why young people don’t vote GOP!!!”

as is Nancy Pelosi, if anyone was wondering if we would somehow have been better off if the stalinist had won.
