Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch launched a new group, Republicans for Elizabeth Colbert Busch, Wednesday. It is headed by Leslie Turner, former wife of Teddy Turner who unsuccessfully ran against Mark Sanford in last month's primary for the 1st Congressional District.
Sanford's campaign pointed out that Leslie Turner made a $250 donation to President Barack Obama in 2007 and questioned her Republican credentials.

Leslie Turner said she made the donation during a fundraiser at a friend's home in an effort to support her friend. She added she has never voted for Obama.
