Former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford just won the Republican runoff for the 1st congressional district Special Election tonight.

This is the same Mark Sanford who, as governor, disappeared from office and used taxpayer money to visit his mistress.

With all the issues we are working on, we do not need him in Congress. Fortunately, there is a strong independent woman running to give us a better alternative named Elizabeth Colbert Busch.

The latest release from Public Policy Polling shows the campaigns are virtually tied right now, but Sanford has a big money advantage.

I talked to Elizabeth and told her we are going to do everything we can to make sure she wins. My Off The Sidelines PAC has already contributed to Elizabeth’s campaign, but with only 35 days until Election Day, she needs all of our help.

Republican party bosses know they can’t run on Sanford’s record, so they are going to attack Elizabeth. She needs us to fight back.Will you join me, right now, in contributing to her campaign?

Click here to send $5 or more directly to electing Elizabeth Colbert Busch.

Elizabeth has spent the last five years as director of Business Development at Clemson University’s Restoration Institute. She also led the effort to bring the world’s largest wind turbine/grid simulator facility to the district she is running to represent. This has created thousands of jobs, important wage gains and set an example for what renewable energy can do for the environment and the economy.

Elizabeth is exactly the kind of person we need in elected office. She has real accomplishments for middle-class families. And, she pronounces the “t” in Colbert.

Help Elizabeth win today.

Click here to give $5 or more, now, so we can make sure Elizabeth has what she needs to run a winning race over the next 35 days.

Thank you,

Kirsten
