Curtis Bostic endorsed by Santorum in #SC01 primary against Mark Sanford

Curtis Bostic endorsed by Santorum in #SC01 primary against Mark Sanford

In the race to replace now-Senator Tim Scott’s vacated House seat, Republicans Curtis Bostic and Mark Sanford are facing off in the runoff election preceding the May 7 special election.

The date for the runoff election is April 2, just one week away, and occurs when no candidate in the primary receives more than 50 percent of the vote. Sanford received 37 percent of the primary vote and Bostic received 13 percent, among a field of 16 Republican candidates. The winner of the runoff election will face Democrat nominee Elizabeth Colbert Busch, sister to comedian Stephen Colbert.

Our position on Sanford?  Just say No.

Today former Republican candidate for President Rick Santorum announced his endorsement of Bostic, who is a former Charleston County council member and Marine Corps veteran.

Robert Stacy McCain reports:

A newly released Public Policy Polling survey shows the SC-1 race surprisingly close, in part because voters “continue to strongly dislike Sanford,” who was censured by the legislature for ethics violations related to the former governor’s affair with an Argentine woman.

In a conference call with bloggers last week, Bostic described himself as a “constitutional conservative” and said his campaign has “strong evangelical support.” The endorsement by Santorum, a devout pro-life Catholic, can be expected to energize Bostic social conservative supporters.

As McCain also reports, the usual South Carolina suspects who falsely accused Nikki Haley of having an affair are backing Sanford.  That’s mighty rich.

Santorum, whose brother lives on Hilton Head Island in South Carolina, will be traveling to the state Wednesday as part of his show of support.

Oh great. It is a proxy Argentinian catfight.

Santorum & his Pope vs Sandford & his Ho.

As the people of Atlanta stood sullenly watching Shermans troops -one cried out ;

“Why don’t you go & attack those f…stupid South Carolinians. They started it”

And the South Carolinians were so f…stupid , they did not realise they were coming. Hoped they had gotten lost.

If they lose this seat – the mockery will last another 150 years.

I’m taking a wait and see approach to the stupidity of South Carolina voters. It will be interesting to see the result of the election.

Perhaps people in the 1st CD will respond positively to the carpetbagging yankee lobbyist’s endorsement. There is a first time for everything.

It is all very fine to hide Bostic’s record of big spending. He’s never met spending he didn’t like and vote for. Never found any cuts or reforms he would endorse. Even to today.

So if Bostic the trial lawyer wins, we won’t hear whining from the idiot out-of-staters who pimped for him, will we?

I’d put my money on someone I knew couldn’t stand Lindsey Graham. Sanford proved incompetent to do the peoples’ business. The guy has mental problems, I heard audio of him. He wants to stab us again by running in a race where we could get the one thing we desperately need which is new Republican blood. He’s supported by those who attempted to sabotage Nikki Haley. What they did to Haley makes Lee Atwater look like a saint. Sanford is groveling to do this meaning he will likely owe the establishment. I’d like to know whom Rick Scott endorses. Wich guy is going to get rid of Lindsey Graham for me, however it has to be done?
