Sanford Ties Colbert Busch to Big Labor in New Ad

Beleaguered congressional candidate Mark Sanford is hitting back with a new ad painting his Democratic rival as tied to big labor.

Sanford, who trails Elizabeth Colbert Busch by nine points in South Carolina’s normally solid GOP 1st district, is trying to regain momentum lost when he was accused of trespassing at his ex-wife’s home. He says he went there to watch the Super Bowl with their son.



The ad says that Colbert Busch — sister of late-night comic Stephen Colbert — is funded by “labor unions’ special interest money,” including from the union that “tried to shut down Boeing,” in the Palmetto State.

“In Congress she’ll return the favor,” says the narrator, who calls the Democrat “labor’s voice, Pelosi’s voice. Not our voice.”

Sanford, the state’s former governor, has been fighting an uphill battle against Colbert Busch. Last week the National Republican Congressional Committee withdrew its support after the trespassing allegations surfaced.

The May 7 election was caused when sitting Rep. Tim Scott was appointed to the Senate. Scott won 62 percent of the vote in November’s election.
