Candidates out in full force on last campaign day

Posted: Updated:

Former Governor Mark Sanford made nearly a dozen stops in Mount Pleasant, Daniel Island and Beaufort today, shaking hands and promising big changes in Washington.

Although, some supporters just wanted to thank him for things they have right here in the Lowcountry, like two women who stopped him just to mention their ties to Boeing.

Boeing has become a big talking point for the candidates which Sanford said is an indication voters will overlook his past mistakes in office.

"What they talk about are issues that impact their lives, impact their pocket book, their wallet and I think that really has been the focal point of the conversation I've had with them," he said. "It hasn't been about my personal failings, they're all well chronicled, they're out there. People know about them."

Those failings he refers to are not things Elizabeth Colbert-Busch said she wants considered in the election.

"We need to compare two campaigns and look at difference in two campaigns and our policy, that's what should be the deciding factor," she said.

On her stops in Summerville and downtown Charleston, she said part of her policy is to create jobs and expand businesses like Boeing.

"I've worked with them for four plus years now in workforce development," she said. "We need to pay attention to 'what does the industry need?' and let's deliver it, let's deliver the conditions to make them successful."

Colbert-Busch confidently said she will win this race.

Sanford didn't want to answer who will win, he only said he's at peace with where he is now.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday.
