Mark Sanford, the former governor of South Carolina who once vanished without word to his office or family for nearly a week, is considering a primary challenge to President Trump.
His explanation for his 2009 vanishing act was that he was hiking the Appalachian trail. But it turned out he had secretly flown to Brazil to spend six days with his mistress.
The Post and Courier of Charleston, South Carolina, reports Sanford said “he will take the next month to formulate whether he will mount a potential run against Trump.”
He said a run for president would be “a way of pushing a national debate about America’s mounting debt, deficit and government spending.”
Sanford retired from Congress last year. He previously served as governor of South Carolina and was popular among Republicans nationally. (Read more from “GOP Governor Who ‘Vanished for Sex’ May Run Against Trump” HERE)
