    On balance, he's a good candidate. The GOP has to do well with their third tier candidates - the morons - to reach 60 in the Senate.

    He fell from grace, only to ask the great folks of South Carolina for another chance. Hope he serves his state well.

    @RollinPapers the only remarks close to bigotry, was Redneck. The rest was just people expressing their displeasure with the results. I heard way worse from you rights after the presidential race, and still do to this day. These people have a point. This man robbed his state to fund an affair, and loved to their faces about it. But they re-elect him anyway.

    This guy is not my pick at all, however his opponent was worse. Guess SC has a problem getting good candidates. I had rather see the seat vacant until 2014 myself.

    It's hard to find decent honest people willing to become politicians, because by the very nature of the game, it's nearly impossible to be a decent and moral politician. The game needs to be changed, and get rid of most of the professional politicians, and get real average citizens elected, not the career lawyers and scam artists.

    Appalachian Trail, Argentina, I mean really? What difference does it make?...Power corrupts, we've seen it time and again, and what's the
    big deal? Since Clinton, deviance in our elected officials doesn't matter
    much anymore, does it? This has been going on forever. The people spoke
    and I don't live in S. Carolina, but , we have enough deviants here. Oh well...It didn't start with him, and it won't end with him.

    I agree, and what does anyone know about the comedian's sister?
    Steven Colbert entered his sister as a joke, and the liberals go all nuts because she lost the election.
    We all remember Vera Baker, and Obama's affair with her.
    I guess it is typical hypocrisy from the left.
    O-K for them, but not for a conservative.
    I'm NOT defending Sanford,.........just sayin......

    @Jim49418 Hypocrisy is all they know, and they live to project it onto Conservatives or anyone that disagrees with their skewed agenda... They should talk about morality. What a joke.

    @miketost Umm, it isn't "one less Democrat". It's the same number of Republicans. Rep-elect Sanford will take over now-Republican Senator Tim Scott's seat.

    Nah, this just proves americans are idiots anf vote party not substance. Something which most knew beforehand.
    It goes to show that Clinton 2016 is probably the winning ticket. Just like the majority of South Carolina republicans chose to overlook Sanfords history and vote for him because he's not a democrat the same will hold true for Clinton in 3 years with the democrats. The status quo is what it's all about. Those in charge like the stagnation we're in. Look at the earnings for the top 1% over the past few years. Gridlock is apparently good for business.

    @AntiPorcheria SC TO USA we have conformation The religious right are a bunch of hypocrites.
    Electing a thieving, dishonest cheat, is their kind of guy vs a proven successful honest business woman. Sad very sad

    Ted Kennedy was an adulterous corrupt politician who was re-elected by the people of Massachusetts how many times? I don't believe Sanford is responsible for anyone's death. Don't throw stones Dan. When the Democrats failed to dump Teddy they opened themselves to valid charges of hypocrisy forevermore.

    Long Live The Conservatives! We are winning a War but we have a long fight ahead of us! Congrats to Mr. Mark Sanford and God Bless America!

    Wow, I expected the Dem to win. I guess the libbies got too comfy and decided not to vote today. Another GOP notch on their belt. With 54% in favor of Sanford, it looks like that GOP belt took the Dems to the woodshed. I'm sure we'll hear 0bama say it was a fallacy and then go off and cry about how it's not fair (the typical mantra of the liberal left)....

    What is wrong with people when they vote for a man that walked out on his state, could not be found, lied about where he was at, cheated on his wife, divorced his wife, married his mistress, and that is just what we know about.. No wonder congress does such dumb sh#t because they know they can get away with it. South Carolina hope you get what you deserve.

    @slayer98_l I have no problem with a good candidate being a Republican, Independent, or a Democrat, but when a person has this kind of background and wins; people are not voting to get a good representative, they are just voting party lines. No one party has a monopoly on good politicians and today's political arenas are proof. When the best you can put out there is Mark Sanford what does that say?

    @grilla It's who gives away the most stuff that wins with today's uniformed electorate. And that's why the country's in the shape it's in and getting worse.

    @grilla The EXACT same thing could be said about Obama, or about 400 other congressmen and women. Americans celebrate bad behavior now. It's shameful.

    @Concerned_Cit Well this is certainly a perfect example of exactly that, I'm inclined to agree with that statement. Although truthfully Obama seems to be at least a good family man.

    Brilliant strategy - get pre-scandalized and carry on with the campaign. Somewhere, Larry Craig is doing *facepalms*

    Another self serving, dishonest, unethical loser voted into office in Washington. We already have far too many criminals, losers and assorted nitwits calling shots for this nation.

    God did not forgive Sanford. How could he? Sanford unlike Clinton or Wiener intends to continue in his adultery; in fact , he intends to marry in a unsanctified marriage; his Sanctified Marriage to his wife will continue until one of them dies.
    Jesus told the adulteress, neither do I accuse you, go sin no more.
    South Carolinians forgave Sanford incuding his blashemy about God forgiving hin, clearly Scripture says God hates adulterers.
    If a Christian put aside God's Commandment to separate themselves fron the reprobate (remaining in his life of adultery), for whatever their will demanded, I will pray for them.
    Who can stand against God and prevail? They will call My Name but their hearts are Far from me. I will Iind them, lest they should see.
