Sanford announces return to politics

Washington (CNN) - Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford formally announced his campaign for the U.S. House on Wednesday morning, casting himself as a fiscal conservative intent on reducing government spending.

"I am running because our country's future is at stake if we don't get our hands around runaway government spending in Washington," Sanford said in a statement. "And given our nation's long-term financial problems, we need more who have shown themselves to be leaders in standing up to the big spenders, regardless of party."

Saying she enjoys "private life," Sanford stressed that her time is better spent outside of Congress than inside the current environment of the House of Representatives.

Mark Sanford reflects on 'the valleys in life'

(CNN) - Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford said he could have been on the path to the White House had he not been involved in a scandal that derailed his rising political career two years ago.

"I don't know where my life would have gone, but it could well have been in the presidential mix just because I care deeply about these issues and I've long been talking about them," Sanford said Monday in a live interview on CNN's "Piers Morgan Tonight."

Sanfords together again–briefly

(CNN) - Nikki Haley's victory in South Carolina Tuesday did more than make her the Republican nominee for governor, it brought one of the political world's most famous ex-couples back together again – briefly.






South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford and ex-wife Jenny, the subject of ongoing media attention for a year, embraced and kissed at Haley's victory party Tuesday night. Both are supporters of the state lawmaker who handily beat Rep. Gresham Barrett in a runoff for the party's gubernatorial nomination.

But the total running time of affection was a mere two seconds before Jenny Sanford moved on to address another individual in the room.

It was exactly a year ago that Sanford went missing and his office infamously told members of the media the governor was hiking on the Appalachian Trail. It was discovered days later the Republican governor was actually in Argentina visiting a mistress. After a long separation, the two were divorced in February.
