You can click here to donate:You remember Mark Sanford? He's the former Governor of South Carolina who went missing for six days while he said he was "hiking the Appalachian Trail," when he really was on his now infamous personal trip to Argentina.
Well, after going into hiding for a few years, Sanford is now the Republican nominee in a Special Election for South Carolina's First Congressional District.
The election is in two weeks, and his opponent is Elizabeth Colbert Busch... Stephen Colbert's sister.All caught up now?
We're running a hard-hitting ad holding Sanford accountable for abandoning his post while serving as Governor, and we need your help to expand our buy. With Colbert-Busch up two points in the polls, it could mean the difference between a big victory, or an agonizing defeat.
Watch the ad and contribute to VoteVets today.
This wouldn't be Mark Sanford's first term as a member of the House of Representatives.Sanford served there before -- from 1995 to 2001 -- and was notorious for voting against a slew of bills important to veterans, including housing grants for homeless veterans, VA Appropriations Bills, and more.
We have a chance to stop him from returning, and we're going to take it. I hope you'll join us by watching the ad and contributing to VoteVets today.
We're one of the few organizations active in this race right now, so picking up a win would send a strong message about our effectiveness.
Thanks for standing with us in this fight.
