Wild Congressional Race in South Carolina

Hosted by

Remember the South Carolina Governor who disappeared for six days, supposedly hiking the Appalachian Trail, though he was really in Argentina pursuing a mistress. Well, Mark Sanford's back in what might offer Democrats a win in one of the reddest states in the US. One of 16 Republicans in a primary for the state's First Congressional District, which became vacant when incumbent Tim Scott was appointed to the US Senate, he won 37 percent of yesterday's vote. Now, he'll be in a runoff against Elizabeth Colbert Busch, sister of comedian Steven Colbert. Scott Huffmon is Professor of Political Science at Winthrop University in Rock Hill.
