Sanford: I Won't Run For Office Again If I Lose

Source: AP

Former Gov. Mark Sanford, looking for redemption in a political career that was sidelined by scandal, said Tuesday's race for the vacant South Carolina congressional seat he once held for three terms will be his last if he loses to Elizabeth Colbert Busch.

"I think you can go back in and you can ask for a second chance in a political sense once," he said Tuesday after voting in the special election. "I've done that, and we'll see what the voters say."

He faces Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert, and Green Party candidate Eugene Platt in the race for the 1st District congressional seat.

The former governor, once mentioned as a potential GOP presidential contender, also said Tuesday that he is tired but cautiously optimistic as one of the more unusual campaigns in a state known for rough-and-tumble politics draws to a close.

He better lose this one. I hope my fellow DUers in South Carolina filled in the bubble next to ELIZABETH COLBERT BUSCH!

1. Is that a promise?

Yeah, and Rush Limbaugh said if health care reform passed he'd move to Costa Rica.

And Ted Nugent promised us he'd be dead or in jail by now if President Obama won re-election.

These conservatives will promise you the moon, but they never deliver.
