With 42% reporting Mark Sanford holds onto his lead over Elizabeth Colbert Busch 53.7% to 45.8%. Early returns from Charleston and Dorchester county are surprisingly favorable to Sanford, with him keeping with 5 points of Colbert Busch.
Sanford is running away in Berkeley County by over 15 points. This is not a stage that the Colbert Busch campaign wants to be at. She still has the majority of Charleston and Dorchester precincts, especially the heavily populated one, to report in so Colbert Busch fans should not wave the white flag yet.
