Well, this can't feel great: The Democrat who opposed Elizabeth Colbert Busch in the primary for a vacant congressional seat has endorsed her Republican opponent, former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford. Ben Frasier got only 4% of the vote last month against Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert. Frasier says that he's a conservative Democrat and that Colbert Busch doesn't represent the district's conservative values. Colbert Busch faces Sanford and Green Party candidate Eugene Platt in next month's special election. (Read more Elizabeth Colbert Busch stories.)
