Mark Sanford Visits Sun City

Former SC Governor Mark Sanford visited Sun City Monday to campaign for Congress.  He's the fourth of 19 candidates to visit the retirement community so far. 

Sanford's college friend and former Chief of Staff Senator Tom Davis endorsed Sanford for Congress and told the crowd Sanford is one of the only candidates who "doesn't think Charleston is the center of the universe."  Davis referred to the Jasper Port when saying Sanford would fight for Beaufort County issues.

Sanford said he's running to bring "common sense" back to Washington.  He gave examples of the "common sense" practices he brought as governor such as not accepting federal stimulus money, bringing down wait times at the DMV and starting programs at prisons that saved money and taught inmates life-skills at the same time.

Sanford started his address to the group by acknowledging what he calls "failures" and "mistakes"  in abandoning the state while governor to visit his mistress in Argentina.  He asked for a second chance and one neighbor said he deserves it.

"There are a lot of people who make mistakes," Arthur Boska said.  "He admitted he made a mistake and he said he was sorry for it. So, he has an opportunity to get a second chance. I believe we must stick with the issues and be honest with the American people," he said.

Representative Andy Patrick of Hilton Head will visit Sun City Thursday at 3:30.  The Sun City events are only open to residents.
