Colbert Busch and Sanford Trade Jabs in Only Debate

Elizabeth Colbert Busch (D) portrayed Mark Sanford (R) "as a dishonest job-killer who voted against the dredging of the Charleston port during a debate Monday, while Sanford characterized her as a wishy-washy union-backer who relies on special interest money from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other national Democrats," The State reports.

Politico: "And so it went on one issue after another -- from jobs and spending to Obamacare and gun control -- in a 75-minute slugfest ahead of next week's battle for a vacant South Carolina congressional seat."

"It was their sole one-on-one encounter of the general election -- and Colbert Busch, who is leading in polls, was so aggressive that Sanford at times looked like he didn't know what hit him."
