Rep.-elect Mark Sanford’s special election victory is a testament to his well-run, competent campaign organization.

The Republican’s personal baggage alone made this a competitive race — even in the GOP-heavy 1st District. It was further complicated by the low turnout and unpredictable nature of a special election.

This is the team that pulled it off:

  • Jason Miller of Jamestown Associates: general consultant and television
  • Jon Kohan: campaign manager
  • Sunny Philips: finance
  • Joel Sawyer of PUSH Digital: communications and new media
  • Jan van Lohuizen of Voter Consumer Research, Inc.: pollster
Three of them have worked for Sanford before: Miller, Philips and Sawyer.

    The team that pulled it off. LOL. After voting for Gingrich in the primaries and now voting for Sanford.

    SC voters show what family values really mean.


    How many adulterers do you republicans have in Congress.
