Guess Who Has No Democratic Opponent in 2014?



Text  



Remember about a year ago, when Democrats spent a fortune to defeat former governor Mark Sanford in a special House election? Elizabeth Colbert Busch spent $1.8 million, and the House Majority PAC and the DCCC spent $884,000 on independent expenditures.

The deadline for filing papers for a race for Congress in South Carolina was March 30. No Democrat filed papers to run for Congress in South Carolina’s first congressional district. (Independent candidates have until July 15 to file the papers.)

Unless some independent candidate jumps in, Representative Mark Sanford will run unopposed for Congress in 2014. From an underdog to unopposed in just a year!
