Former, and disgraced, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford wants to clinch the Republican nomination Tuesday for the right to take on Democrat Elizabeth Colbert in a May 7 special election.

However, according to Politico, Sanford is "damaged goods" and he risks handing a "safe Republican congressional seat" to the sister of Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert — Sanford "disappeared" from June 18 until June 24, 2009, telling his staff that he would be hiking on the Appalachian Trail, when he really was in Argentina where he was having an extra marital affair

And now, Sanford plans on coming back to the political arena by defeating former Charleston County Councilman Curtis Bostic, who has close ties to the evangelical community and Tea Party movement — he finished a distant second to Sanford in the March 19 Republican primary.
