    Doesn't seem like he has much of a chance. The revelation in the article that he went hunting with the Sanford's last week suggests he might be serving as a sort of stalking horse meant to increase the perceived difficulty in raising enough funds and name recognition to win the battle to emerge as Sanford's main rival and be the guy who makes it to the run off. If enough people stay away, Sanford might win enough votes to avoid a run off altogether.

    Ted Sr will spend any amount of money to win that seat....err help his son win. He needs Agenda 21/UN friendly Senators in SC. Sanford is going to need some help. And Colbert's sister is running for the Dem nom. This is going to be an epic election in SC. I don't know whether to see a bunch of elites teaming up to guarantee an outcome or whether even the elite folks are starting to eat their own in public.

    Sanford is a two term governor who has lived in the district nearly all his life. Turner is a high school teacher lol...

    Most normal people don't know who the Turners are. Everyone in SC knows who Mark Sanford is.

    I think a lot of you are overestimating the district and it's potential to be influenced by outside people like Colbert. Most of the residents are probably senior citizens. Mark was in Sun City yesterday, which from the few times I've gone on vacation to Hilton Head seems like a giant retirement community! lol

    High school teacher with a dad with never-ending pockets to dump into PACs. I just witnessed last election in my CD how the guy with the most money to burn wins. Sanford has the name recognition, Turner has the money and name recognition.

    Would Ted Sr. help his son who apparantly differs with him politically?

    Good question but blood is thicker than water and the elites love to set up their kids in positions of power.

    Sanford is going to need help and considering his rhetoric of late (very RP-esque) Im sure there's some movements in the background to try to upend him in case he gets too uppity.

    Sanford has always been pretty RP-esque! He was friends with Dr Paul when they were in the House together.

    I'm convinced that had he not had that affair, he would have been our President this year. Convinced.

    He has been around long enough to be considered an "establishment" candidate. He has executive experience they all love. Although he called himself a social conservative he didn't go over the top with it. He leans very very fiscally (libertarian) conservative. He would have united the GOP, unlike Romney.

    Obama 2012 wasn't as popular as Obama 2008. The Republicans could have beat him, if they had put up a candidate that could unite.

    Unfortunately, Sanford's affair killed him on the social conservative front. Idiot. Thought with the wrong head.

    You guys don't think Ted Turner would run his son if he wasn't confident he had several sources of support? Powerful people like Ted Turner has probably already cut several deals.

    SC is right next door to Turner's GA too. Also runs CNN, the most unbiased news source in the country, along with all the other Turner umbrella companies. Radio, tv, etc

    Why would a governor run for a lesser political office? I think Sanford would look for the senate as that has some equal rank as the governor.

    He used to be the congressman, he's lived in the district all his life (or parts of it at least). The opportunity came up due to Scott going to the Senate. He's not going to take on Graham or Scott so the senate is filled

    John Quincy Adams was a US Congressman after being President.
    John Tyler was a Confederate Congressman after being President.
    Andrew Johnson was a US Senator after being President.
    William Howard Taft was Chief Justice of the Supreme Court after being President.

    Looks like Sanford will be in a run-off against Curtis Bostic for the Republican nomination. Stephen Colbert's sister won the Dem nod with 95%. Very surprised Turner finished in 4th place with around 8%. I didn't realize how many people were running for that seat!

    When Ron talked in the debate about bringing the military home and reopening some of the bases in SC, improving the economy, there was little positive reaction (outside his supporters). It will be a different story with Sanford, since as a former governor, he will have them listening when he touts more local jobs by overseas military downsizing. (Sort of like Rand bringing up the economic benefits of legalizing hemp for Kentucky's economy.)

    Sanford won easily. 37% with 19,000 votes almost triple the second place republican. Colbert's sister got 16,000 votes. 53,000 R voters vs 16k D voters, so I think based on that we can be very confident Sanford is going back to congress.
