CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — The man running against former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford in a GOP runoff for an open congressional seat says Sanford is a compromised candidate who would offer Democrats a chance to win the May 7 special election.
Former Charleston County Council member Curtis Bostic said during a televised debate Thursday night that "a compromised candidate is not what we need" in the race against Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Bush, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert.
The runoff is Tuesday.
Sanford disappeared from the state in 2009, telling his staff he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail, only to return to reveal he was having an extramarital affair with an Argentine woman to whom he is now engaged.
Sanford acknowledged he "failed very publically" but said he has done a lot of soul searching since then. He added, "Not since Jesus Christ was here has there been a perfect man or woman."
