Former SC Gov. Mark Sanford endorsed by Ron Paul, Sen. Rand Paul could endorse Tuesday

Former Gov. Mark Sanford has and will receive endorsements for his South Carolina  1st Congressional District run from the father and son team of former Texas Congressman Ron Paul and Kentucky Senator Rand Paul.

Sanford, who will be facing Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, sister of Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert, goes all the way back to the 1990s with the elder Paul.

“Mark Sanford has always been a strong ally of the Liberty Movement,” Ron Paul writes in a fundraising plea. “Help him get to Congress. Donate today!”, The Hill reports.

The Paul endorsement could give Sanford some much needed fundraising capabilities against the well-funded Colbert Busch.

Ron Paul recent endorsements include Georgia Congressman Paul Broun for the Senate seat being vacated by retiring Saxsby Chambliss.  In a smaller race in Upstate New York, Dr. Paul endorsed David Andrew Gay for the Syracuse City Council last week.

CNN reports that Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is set to endorse Republican Mark Sanford in the special election in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District, two sources familiar with the race said. The endorsement could come as soon as Tuesday.

One of Sanford’s major hurdles in the race is the baggage he carries from his 2009 personal issues.
