Off to the races: Sanford, Bostic debate in SC

MICHIGAN: Rep. Justin Amash (R-MI) is causing trouble in the House and now might have his sights set on the Senate.

NEVADA: A Nevada Democrat was expelled from the state Assembly.

PENNSYLVANIA: Rep. Allyson Schwartz (D) is running for governor of Pennsylvania.

SOUTH CAROLINA: Politico: “Underdog South Carolina Republican congressional hopeful Curtis Bostic mounted a last-ditch bid on Thursday night to halt former Republican Gov. Mark Sanford’s momentum, calling him politically damaged and saying he would risk losing the seat to a Democrat in the general election. Appearing in a debate at the Porter-Gaud School here ahead of Tuesday’s special runoff election, Bostic launched his most aggressive assault on Sanford’s personal life yet, telling the Republican crowd, ‘A compromised candidate is not what we need.’ ‘Democrats,’ he said, ‘are excited at the possibility of taking this seat back.’ Bostic, a former Charleston County councilman who has long been active in the South Carolina evangelical community and the homeschooling movement, had avoided discussing Sanford’s home life until now. The exchange came up about an hour into the nearly 90-minute debate, the first of three faceoffs before Tuesday.”
