Former Gov. Mark Sanford has gained the endorsement of Erick Erickson, a well-known conservative blogger and editor of the right-leaning website, RedState.
"There are several people who are running and all of them are good people. None of them have the track record in their time in elected office as committed to small government as Mark Sanford," Erickson said in a post on RedState.
"I am willing to forgive him. And I'm willing to be graceful. We need him. There's no better alternative. He's with us. I endorse him without reservation. I hope the voters of South Carolina will show him grace and put him back in the fight at this desperate hour for fiscal conservatives."
The primary is scheduled for March 19.
