Charleston, SC (WBTV) -
Former South Carolina Republican Governor Mark Sanford has formally announced his candidacy for the state's open 1st Congressional District.
Sanford previously served as the 115th Governor of South Carolina from 2003-2011, and prior to that represented South Carolina's 1st Congressional District in Washington from 1995-2001 before stepping down to honor a self-prescribed term limits pledge.
The current district includes Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton and Dorchester Counties.
"I am running because our country's future is at stake if we don't get our hands around runaway government spending in Washington," said Sanford. "And given our nation's long-term financial problems, we need more who have shown themselves to be leaders in standing up to the big spenders, regardless of party."
As governor, the CATO Institute ranked Sanford the most fiscally conservative Governor in America and described him as, "A staunch supporter of spending restraint and pro-growth tax reforms."
In Congress, Sanford was recognized by Citizens Against Government Waste and the National Taxpayers Union as the most fiscally conservative member on Capitol Hill.
WBTV will continue to follow this latest development in Sanford's career.
