It's official: Sanford facing Colbert Busch in SC

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. - The race for a vacant South Carolina congressional seat has turned into the big-name contest political junkies had hoped for.

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, a Republican trying to make a comeback after his political career was derailed by his admission of an extramarital affair four years ago, faces Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert. The special election is May 7.

Sanford defeated former Charleston County Councilman Curtis Bostic in the GOP primary runoff Tuesday, clearing another hurdle in his quest for political redemption.

Colbert Busch, a businesswoman, has long aspired to political office. She says jobs is her top priority.
