Voters decide on Mark Sanford comeback

Ex-governor wins GOP nomination for old House seat

(THE STATE.COM)Former Gov. Mark Sanford said Tuesday that results from a South Carolina congressional primary runoff will give a good indication whether voters have moved past the personal indiscretions that derailed his political career several years ago.

“I think tonight’s verdict will say a lot as to where people are or are not on that,” Sanford said after voting in his downtown Charleston precinct. “I suppose at some level, I will never completely move beyond that.”

The former three-term congressman and two-term governor saw his political career sidelined four years ago when he disappeared from the state only to return and confess to an extramarital affair with a woman to whom he is now engaged.
