Sanford Takes It

AP and CNN calling it for Mark Sanford in South Carolina.

DCCC chairman Steve Israel (D-NY) issued a statement that reads in part:

In this deep red Republican district that Mitt Romney won by 18 points, the fact that the Democrat made this competitive is a testament to the strength of Elizabeth Colbert Busch as a candidate and the Republican habit of nominating flawed candidates. Democrats will be aggressive and drive deep into Republican-held territory this cycle to find districts with flawed Republican candidates where we can compete.
