Group announces support for Elizabeth Colbert Busch

WEST ASHLEY, SC (WCSC) - A group called "Republicans for Elizabeth Colbert Busch" announced their support for the Democrat saying they feel she is the best candidate for the state's 1st Congressional District seat.

Some of the speakers went on to say they no longer trust Mark Sanford.

"I realized she's pretty moderate, she's not a liberal Democrat," said Leslie Turner, chair of Republicans for Elizabeth Colbert Busch."She could be called a moderate Republican if she hadn't already labeled herself a Democrat. The race is not about labels, it's about choosing the best candidate for the job. I want to vote for the candidate who has integrity solid character and good values."

The first debate will take place at The Citadel on Monday, April 29 at 7 p.m. The special election is May 7.

Green Party candidate Eugene Platt will also be on the ballot.
