Mark 'Hiking the Appalachian Trail' Sanford Attempting Political Comeback
by Lisa Rollins,posted Jan 16 2013 12:00AM
Remember Mark Sanford? The Republican governor of South Carolina whose staff famously said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail when he disappeared for days in June 2009 when he was in reality with his mistress in Argentina? Sanford and his wife, the mother of his four children, divorced the following year, and he served out his term as governor ending in early 2011, falling off the radar after that. But Sanford has decided to try to make a political comeback, telling National Review's Jim Geraghty yesterday (January 15th) that he's going to run for the U.S. House seat that was vacated when current Republican Governor Nikki Haley appointed Rep. Tim Scott to replace fellow GOP Senator Jim DeMint, who recently left Congress to head the conservative Heritage Foundation. It's also the seat representing the First District that Sanford previously held, from 1995 to 2001, before being elected governor in 2002. Sanford told Geraghty, "In life we're all going to make mistakes, we're all going to come up short. The key is, how do you get back up and how do you learn from those mistakes? . . . But I think that the bigger issue is, don't judge any one person by their best day, don't judge them by their worst day. Look at the totality, the whole of their life, and make judgments accordingly." Sanford is currently engaged to the Argentinian woman with whom he had the affair.
What do YOU think...will he be re-elected to his old seat?
