Mark Sanford Disappoints SC again!!!
The people of the 1st Congressional District forgave Mark Sanford for his "hiking trip" on the Appalachian Trail (in which he embarrassed the entire state of SC) and returned him to Congress a few years ago. Back in June in the GOP Primary, due to Sanford's constant defiance of President Trump's effort to Make America Great Again, the voters in Sanford's district came to their senses and chose Katie Arrington instead. Sanford could not accept the voters decision and would not support Ms. Arrington in Tuesday's election.....this helped the democrats regain the seat since losing it decades ago. Sanford claims it wasn't a partisan thing (or anti-Trump) but, that Ms. Arrington was wrong on some local issues. The national democrats spent a lot of money on their candidate. Everyone knew it could be a close race....and it was..... Democrat Joe Cunningham won by 1.4%. Who knows for sure, but Mark Sanford's support probably would have made the difference. Shame on Mark Sanford!!! Sanford, once again, proved that he only thinks of himself and not the people he claims to serve. Let's make it clear to Sanford that SC is done with him. Call his Congressional office ((843) 352-7572) and let him know how disappointed you are in his selfish actions. In a time that every conservative vote in Congress counts...we just lost one because of Sanford's arrogance. The good news...Katie Arrington is not finished. Katie told ABC 4 News she will be back!!! The race has attracted national attention, as you can imagine, and I had the chance to join Mike Gallagher on his show to give the perspective of a South Carolinian. Take a minute to listen.

Rep. Mark Sanford on losing the Republican Party to Donald Trump
Mark Sanford was elected to Congress in 1994, where he quickly established himself as one of the most conservative members of the chamber. In 2002, he was elected governor of South Carolina. He was, again, one of the most conservative elected officials in the country. Many expected him to be the GOP’s nominee against Obama in 2012.Then it all happened. The disappearance. “Hiking the Appalachian trail.” Sanford left public life. He was done, it seemed. And then he wasn’t. He won a House seat in South Carolina. He overcame the kind of scandal that usually destroys a politician. But he couldn’t overcome Trump. Sanford was a rock-ribbed conservative, a Republican, but he was no Trumpist. He accused the president of fanning the flames of intolerance, of being reckless with the truth. He wrote a New York Times op-ed calling on Trump to release his tax returns. Sanford got a primary opponent for his troubles, Trump endorsed her, and Sanford lost. Weeks after Sanford's defeat, Trump appeared before House Republicans and mocked Sanford in front of his colleagues. The president, unusually, was booed.I sat down with Sanford in his final weeks in Congress to talk about what he’s learned about the Republican Party, about Donald Trump, about America, and about himself.
