First on the CNN Ticker: Sanford, wife still haven't spoken

SULLIVANS ISLAND, South Carolina (CNN) - Gov. Mark Sanford's office may have spoken with him today, according to a spokesman - but his wife Jenny still has not, she told CNN Tuesday afternoon.

"I am being a mom today," she told CNN's David Mattingly. "I have not heard from my husband. I am taking care of my children."

Jenny Sanford told the Associated Press Monday that she did not know where her husband had gone, but was unconcerned, according to The State newspaper. The GOP governor's office said Tuesday they have spoken with him, and that he will be back on the job Wednesday.

    Walker says: CNN has to chase anyone who does not go along with the DNC. Ever heard of getting out of the office for a few days – give me in break. Here in the real world we go camping with our kids or buddies and do not talk to anyone for days.

    RIGHT! You take your kids and go away. You don't go away, by yourself, on Father's Day, do you? If you do, I would venture to guess that you are divorced and your kids mean next to nothing to you.

    Why would you make this comparison when it doesn't hold any water at all?
