Red State backs Sanford in District 1 race

Posted: Updated:

CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCIV) — Mark Sanford has the support of one of the largest conservative bloggers in the country, his campaign announced Thursday.

Erick Erickson, the editor of Red State, backed the former governor out of a field of nearly 20.

"There are several people who are running and all of them are good people. None of them have the track record in their time in elected office as committed to small government as Mark Sanford," Erickson's post read.

Sanford said he has been humbled by the amount of support he's received in the race.

"We need him. There's no better alternative. He's with us. I endorse him without reservation. I hope the voters of South Carolina will show him grace and put him back in the fight at this desperate hour for fiscal conservatives," Erickson said.
