With the special election in South Carolina’s 1st District less than a week away, conventional wisdom gives the edge to Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch in her race against Republican Mark Sanford.

So far, she has raised more than $900,000, compared with $450,000 for the former South Carolina governor.

The National Republican Congressional Committee has pulled out of the race, and the Palmetto State’s GOP congressional delegation has retreated from hosting an event for Sanford, who faces charges of trespassing from his former wife.

Supporters of the Democrat are now running a commercial featuring a Republican woman who says she will no longer vote for Sanford because of his past adultery.

But Sanford got a boost last week, as Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, a popular figure among conservatives, endorsed him and South Carolina GOP Gov. Nikki Haley was scheduled to appear at an event for the embattled U.S. House hopeful.
