He was all over the news a few years back after secretly abandoning his post as governor of South Carolina and using tax dollars to visit his mistress in Argentina. All the while, his staff used the excuse that the governor's absence was just due to him "hiking the Appalachian trail."Well, Sanford's back, hoping to stage his political comeback in the special election for South Carolina's 1st Congressional District on May 7.
We have a lot of important issues going on in Congress right now, and the last thing we need is another self-serving, far-right Republican in the House.Fortunately, Elizabeth Colbert Busch -- an incredibly strong campaigner who would make a great congresswoman -- is Sanford's Democratic opponent.

Polls show this race as a toss-up -- impressive given that this district has been considered a Republican stronghold.
But I know firsthand that it's possible for a Democrat to win, even when the pundits count her out -- and especially when running against an infamous Republican -- so I know Elizabeth can win.Right now, the Republican Party is saying -- at least publicly -- they're pulling their resources out of this race, too embarrassed to defend Sanford after he was caught trespassing at his ex-wife's house.
That's what the Republicans said when I ran against Todd "Legitimate Rape" Akin last year, but they lied. They came back to massively fund Akin in the homestretch of our campaign, and they'll do the same for Sanford.
Please help give Elizabeth some of that grassroots power you gave me last year, so she can stand up to Sanford and the Republican Party's ad blitz that's sure to come over these final days of this campaign.

I'm looking forward to welcoming Elizabeth to the U.S. Capitol.
Thanks for your help,

I'm glad to see McCaskill campaign for Colbert Busch. Especially since Colbert-Busch's brother, Stephen, gave her the Colbert Bump last year:
