Colbert-Busch Supporters Surprised Over Outcome

Posted: Updated:
HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -

It was a rough night for some voters in Beaufort County.

Supporters of Elizabeth Colbert-Busch say they were shocked and dismayed that results came in so early, declaring Mark Sanford the winner.

"My reaction was, I'm going to put my house on the market and I am going to a blue state!" Said Ann Rafferty, Tuesday night at the Skull Creek Boathouse.

"Elizabeth Colbert-Busch is a moderate, accomplished, business woman, she has a solid record of creating jobs, we are extremely disappointed," said supporter, John GIles.

The mood at the Boathouse became very somber when virtually everyone announced that Mark Sanford would win the first congressional district seat, but supporters of Elizabeth Colbert-Busch say they will live to fight another day.

And they have no regrets about how they ran the campaign.....

"I think we did everything we could, I mean they didn't even have a ground game, I don't know what happened, I'm in shock I really am, I'm very disappointed in the residents of the first district, I'm just hoping we can overcome still," said Giles.

One supporter has some pretty strong words for the people in the first district.

"I just wanna pray for the people in South Carolina, we had him once already you know, fool me once shame on me fool me twice shame on you!" said Rafferty.
