Bostic, Sanford set for 1st District debate

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC/AP) - Former Gov. Mark Sanford and former Charleston County Councilman Curtis Bostic are set to meet in a debate less than one week before the GOP runoff in the state's 1st Congressional District.

The two are scheduled to meet Thursday night at the Porter-Gaud School in West Ashley at 7 p.m. 

Tickets are $10.  If you can't make it, you can watch it live on Live5News.com.  We'll be streaming the debate here.

Sanford was the top vote-getter in last week's GOP primary. Bostic finished second in the 16-candidate Republican field.

The winner of Tuesday's GOP runoff meets Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Bush in a special election in May.

The seat was left vacant when Rep. Tim Scott was appointed to the U.S. Senate seat once held by Jim DeMint, who resigned to head a conservative think tank.

Sanford is trying to make a political comeback after his public career was derailed four years ago after he admitted an affair.
