Even worse than it just plain sucks, the R's are sure to be insufferable about it.
(CNN) - Former Gov. Mark Sanford will win the race for South Carolina's 1st Congressional District, CNN projects. With 70% of the vote in, Republican Sanford leads Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, 54%-45%.
Once considered a possible presidential candidate, Sanford left office at the end of his term having admitted to an extramarital affair and under a cloud of ethics violations. He represented the district for three terms before being elected governor.
