Colbert Busch rival endorses Sanford

info@islandpacket.comApril 4, 2013 

Ben Frasier, who lost to Elizabeth Colbert Busch in the Democratic primary in the 1st Congressional District, endorsed her rival Thursday in the May 7 general election, Republican nominee Mark Sanford.

"I am a Democrat, but a conservative one, and I am supporting Mark because I don't think Elizabeth represents the conservative values of this district," Frasier said. "... I am crossing party lines to make this endorsement because, with all due respect to Elizabeth, she is just too beholden to the political left to represent the Lowcountry effectively."

Frasier, a perennial candidate, was dismissed by Democratic leaders leading up to the congressional primary last month.
