Sanford Got Approval from Ex-Wife

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) tells John Avlon that one of his first conversations before he decided to run for Congress "was with his ex-wife, Jenny Sanford, who remains popular across the state and had been publicly mentioned as a possible Senate nominee and even a congressional candidate."

Said Sanford: "I sat down with her on the porch and said, 'If you have any thoughts about running for this, then I'm out, because I can't think of anything more disastrous than for a husband and wife to run against each other.' I also told my boys that I wouldn't run if they didn't want me to run."
