Crazy Uncle Liberty Endorses Mark Sanford
The past week for Mark Sanford…it hasn’t been good.
He’s down nine points in the reliably Republican South Carolina 1st District to his Democratic competitor, Elizabeth Colbert Busch. He’s had his cell phone deluged with calls from Democrats after inexplicably putting his phone number in a full-page ad in the Charleston Post and Courier. And for some reason, Sanford thought that performing a strange “debate” with a cardboard version of Nancy Pelosi was a good idea. All in all, the Sanford (R) campaign has been vastly more ridiculous than it’s been sublime, since he won the GOP nomination in a primary run-off.
But according to The Washington Post, [DRUM ROLL] there’s a game-changer:
Mark Sanford’s special election campaign announced Thursday that it has earned the endorsement of Sanford’s former House colleague, Ron Paul.
“Mark Sanford has always been a strong ally of the Liberty Movement. Help him get to Congress. Donate today!” Paul wrote in a fundraising appeal for Sanford.
