Remainders: Conservatives Buy Airtime for Mark Sanford

Here’s what you might have missed “At the Races” on Thursday …

What we’re mulling on Thursday…

  • #SC01: Independent Women’s Voice, a conservative group backing former Gov. Mark Sanford, spent about $65,000 on television in the special election, according to two Democratic operatives who monitor media buying. A number of other Republicans and conservative groups have lined up for Sanford in the past week.
  • #IN05: Freshman Rep. Susan W. Brooks, R-Ind. has a primary challenge: Carmel businessman David Stockdale will announce his candidacy on Saturday, according to a release.
  • #LA06: Businessman Paul Dietzel II announced Thursday he will run for Rep. Bill Cassidy’s seat. Cassidy is running for the GOP nomination to challenge Sen. Mary L. Landrieu, D-La., in 2014. The 6th District is a Republican stronghold, and the GOP field could end up being fairly crowded.
