Surprise Sanford Announcement on Election Day
Lost in the CNN attention Gov. Mark Sanford is getting for leaving his voter registration card at home was another unexpected development.
Sanford told reporters earlier today that this would be his "last election."
Two years ago, with his approval ratings consistently scoring in the mid-to-low 70's, Sanford was rumored as a possible 2008 Presidential contender.
That talk dissipated following a relatively poor showing against a political unknown during the 2006 GOP Primary, but with polls showing Sanford well ahead of Democrat Tommy Moore heading into today's vote, his announcement earlier this morning came as something of a surprise.
It was especially interesting considering the widespread speculation that Sanford might one day run for the U.S. Senate, given his stated affinity for the federal legislative process.
What do you think? What are we to make of the governor's announcement today?
