Sanford seeks 'redemption' in new race

In South Carolina, Mark Sanford needs no introduction.

But after the former governor of the state infamously told the public he was hiking the Appalachian Trail while he was actually traveling to Argentina to carry on an extramarital affair, a reintroduction wouldn't hurt.

"At some level or another we all hope for redemption," Sanford told CNN in an interview.

Sanford is one of 16 Republican candidates seeking to win an open seat in South Carolina's 1st Congressional District. It's the same seat Sanford once held before he ran for governor.

    Women drive government. know. Not the ones that were elected officials either. Vote for Gennifer Flowers 2016 for President. If you don't, they somehow wind up there anyways.
