    Default Roll Call: Mark Sanford Likely Front-Runner

    http://www.rollcall.com/news/sanford...html?pos=hbtxt


    A Sanford aide noted the former governor’s record of fiscal conservatism, not just during his time in Columbia, but during his six years in Congress.
    “At a time when too many Republicans are selling out in Washington, D.C.,” the aide said, “here’s a guy who will take on the fiscal crisis as a true conservative.”
    Read more at the link above. I hope that he puts up a campaign website soon.
    We need more men with backbones in congress.

    I'll donate as soon as he puts up his campaign website. Great to know he's coming back.

    Go Sanford !!

    The current crisis in DC is great timing for him. He can campaign on it and has the record to match.

    It said in the article that that the district his is running in isn't particularly socially conservative. That is a good sign.

    Compared to other parts of the state it is not.

    Yeah, it's the Hilton Head, Beaufort, and suburban low country stretching up the coast towards and past Charleston. I would assume that fiscal concerns are a much bigger priority there. Probably one of the wealthier districts. Likely why Tom Davis is also so popular in that area. Good for Sanford.

    Closing in on around 20 solid conservative House members w/ many more lukewarm ones in the wings. Keep growing ourselves in the local level of the state/county parties and we can double this in 2-4 years.

    Mark Sanford's ex-wife will not be running for the seat.

    Former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford says she will not run for an open congressional seat.

    Sanford told reporters Monday in Charleston that her job as a mother is more rewarding and important than going to Congress.

    I think once we can get a coalition of 40 true conservatives in the House the liberty wing can take over the entire House leadership.

    He should be the front runner, he did a good job, leave the personal stuff out of it.

    All the same, I hope his wife doesn't run against him.

    Heck we could control Speaker if we elect a dozen or so liberty candidates to Congress.

    Interestingly enough that she announces this before the Tuesday paper comes out with her quoted support for "free" hpv vaccines for jr high kids (funded by Federal and state funds).

    Not a glorious disgrace either...a PATHETIC disgrace.

    If Mark Sanford is in the UPPER half of the forums, is he automatically OFF LIMITS or is he fair game til he gets his own subforum?

    Bring it on. The man has dealt with a lot worse than you or twitter trolls and promptly dispatched them.

    He will do so again.

    He has also DONE a lot worse than a lot of people.

    The same this-is-in-the-bag attitude was taken with Peter Schiff and Chris Hightower.

    But pursuant to THE BOO'ING OF RON PAUL & THE GOLDEN RULE, I concede that all bets are off in South Carolina.

    It doesn't answer the question of whether Mark Sanford is DONE DEAL / HANDS OFF with Board Authority.
