Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford wins the special election yesterday for the 1st Congressional District, beating Elizabeth Colbert Busch 54-45. The seat was vacated by Tim Scott when he was appointed to the U.S. Senate by current Governor Nikki Haley after Jim Demint resigned to head the Heritage Foundation. Sanford′s victory could be seen as redemption for his silly Appalachian Trail story when he was visiting his girlfriend in South America. Democrats had pushed hard to win the seat and the Liberal Media did all they could to trash Sanford. Will Stephen Colbert hang his head in shame over his sister′s loss? Will Barack Obama now have to face the probability that the 2014 mid-term elections will keep the House in Republican hands?
