Republican Senators  Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott both issued statements backing Sanford, who will be the Republican nominee in a special congressional election on May 7.

Tim Scott calls Sanford the “stark choice” for the House seat. In a Post and Courier report Wednesday, Scott said:

“On all the most important issues facing our state and country, from dealing with our dangerous levels of debt, to repealing or resisting the government health care takeover, to standing up for Charleston jobs against the NLRB, 1st District voters have a stark choice,” Scott said.

“Mark Sanford is hands down better on all of those issues, and that’s why I believe he merits support.”

South Carolina’s senior Senator, Lindsey Graham said, “Mark has a proven track record cutting spending and fighting government expansion, something we sorely need more of in Washington,” Graham said. “The bottom line is that no Republican or conservative independent can afford to sit on the sidelines for this race. In Congress, Mark will vote to cut wasteful spending, eliminate debt and make government work for the taxpayer. We need him in Washington.”

Sanford will be facing Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, sister of Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert.
