Libertarian Republican Mark Sanford wins!!! SC's Cong. 1st Dist.


FINAL TOTAL 54% TO 45.5% 

From Eric Dondero: 

It appears Ms. Colbert Busch did not get the necessary bounce she needed out of Charleston to take the whole district. Sanford held her to just about even there, and won big in outlying counties like Beaufort and Berkeley. This is a big win for the Republican Party. 

Late breaking results suggest Sanford may even pull it out in Charleston County, which would be a stunning defeat for the SC Democrat Party.

If the GOP can win with a flawed candidate like Sanford, it bodes very well for other elections later this year (NJ & VA), and races going into 2014. 

Note - libertarian Republican US Senator Rand Paul made a last minute endorsement of Sanford.

UPDATE!!

CNN's Elections Desk just called it for Sanford.

Too bad they couldn't have both lost.

Always vote for the lesser evil. Good to see Sanford win. Can't imagine Colbert's sister in congress. Sheesh!

Aside from Sandford's melt down; I don't see much to dislike in him. I don't have a problem with him leaving his wife: just the way he did it.

I do.

He's a shit. A man doesn't cheat on his wife. He cheats on his family.
I'm 44 years old and I've never been inside a titty bar. In our sick culture, that makes me a freak. I get the same response all the time. When I tell someone I've never ridden shotgun in a crop duster because I don't want to ride shotgun in a crop duster, I'm told that EVERYONE goes out of their way to spend time in a crop duster even though they don't farm or make money from crop dusting. I'm into love-making more than most, I guess.
