Mark Sanford says he believes in "a God of second chances," and now the former South Carolina governor has taken the first step toward reviving a political career that was derailed by an extramarital affair.
Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert, always dreamed of a career in politics - and now she has a chance to realize that dream.
As Sanford advanced Tuesday night to an April 2 GOP runoff for an open congressional seat in a southern coastal district, Colbert Busch easily won the Democratic primary to earn a spot on the May 7 general election ballot.
Colbert Busch would appear to face an uphill battle against the eventual Republican nominee in the conservative-leaning district. Mitt Romney carried it by 18 percentage points last year.
