Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford has cleared another hurdle in his bid for a political comeback, defeating a former county council member to win the GOP nomination for a vacant U.S. House seat.
With 78 percent of precincts reporting, Sanford had about 58 percent of the vote to 41 percent for Curtis Bostic, a former Charleston County Council member. The candidates were vying Tuesday in a GOP runoff in the 1st Congressional District, which covers the south coast.
In response to:
Is what Sanford it wrong. ABSOLUTELY! But it is time for Republicans to learn that there is no perfect candidate for any office. Just good people that make mistakes. Republicans need to find the best people and support them. Stop all the sniping and back-stabbing. Democratics look for the best person that can do the job and then forget about any past. And they WIN because we look for the perfect, lilly-white candidate that cannot coherently address a high school senior class. Grow up Republicans. Forgive, forget and start winning.
