Sanford Defeats Bostic in S.C. Runoff

Sanford will go on to face Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the Democratic nominee, in the special election on May 7. Though the district is heavily Republican and has not elected a Democrat since the 1970s, Democrats are optimisitc about Colbert Busch’s chances, particularly given an internal poll she released on Monday showing her with a marginal lead over Sanford.

Her brother’s celebrity doesn’t hurt either. Comedian Stephen Colbert has mentioned his sister (who pronounces the T in her surname) on his show and has already held two events for her, helping Colbert Busch to keep pace with Sanford in fundraising so far. Colbert, the faux TV pundit, will reportedly hold two more high-priced events for her this month. Colbert Busch will also likely have the help of national Democratic groups eager to start off the next election cycle with a red-state victory.
