Sanford Asked Ex-Wife to Run His Campaign

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) told New York magazine that he wanted his ex-wife, Jenny Sanford, to run his congressional campaign.

"According to Jenny, she had already told Mark she would be taking a pass on the race the day before, at the funeral of a mutual friend. So when Mark came to visit her, he arrived with a proposal. 'Since you're not running, I want to know if you'll run my campaign,' he said. 'We could put the team back together.'"

"Jenny told him, in so many words, that wasn't going to happen. Mark made one last appeal."

"I could pay you this time," he said.
