Ron Paul endorses Mark Sanford

April 25, 2013

Mark Sanford's special election campaign announced Thursday that it has earned the endorsement of Sanford's former House colleague, Ron Paul.

"Mark Sanford has always been a strong ally of the Liberty Movement. Help him get to Congress. Donate today!" Paul wrote in a fundraising appeal for Sanford.

It's Paul's second key endorsement of the day. Earlier, he backed libertarian-leaning Rep. Paul Broun in the Georgia GOP Senate primary.

Sanford is running in a conservative-leaning Charleston-based district. While Paul's appeal is somewhat limited within the GOP, his supporters are devoted and generous with their money -- both of which could help Sanford down the stretch in a low-turnout special election.
