So far advertisements from the other candidates such as Teddy Turner, the son of media magnate Ted Turner, state Reps. Chip Limehouse, state Sen. Larry Grooms, Charleston County School Board member Elizabeth Moffly and former Charleston County councilman Curtis Bostic have largely been biographical and haven't made mention of Sanford who served three terms in a differently-drawn 1st District before he was elected governor in 2002.
Only two candidates are running for the Democratic nomination. Elizabeth Colbert-Busch, the sister of comedian and Charleston native Stephen Colbert, is taking on perennial candidate Ben Frazier.
The party primaries are March 19 with runoffs scheduled for April 2. The special election is set for May 7.
