Mark Sanford Planning to Make Political Comeback

December 21, 2012

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford is planning to run in the special election for Rep. Tim Scott's seat, CNN reports.

Sanford, who held the seat in the 1990's, would start a special election sprint with a big advantage in name recognition in what may be a crowded field.

Sanford infamously admitted to an affair during his time as governor, and has since gotten divorced and engaged to the woman with whom he cheated on his wife. The former South Carolina first lady, Jenny Sanford, has also not ruled out a bid -- but CNN also reports that she likely isn't running if Sanford is, as he has told people he wouldn't run against his ex-wife.

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley appointed Scott to fill Sen. Jim DeMint's soon to be vacant Senate seat. His heavily Republican district has attracted a large number of interested candidates -- check out some of the other names here.

The primary will take place on a Tuesday 11 weeks after DeMint's resignation, which he has said will come in early January.
