So does it work?
I could see the rejoinder to this — “take a hike, Mark” stickers should be streaming off the shelves. But in the post-Clinton era, I wonder if this matters much anymore… voters have short enough memories as it stands now and vote on the silliest of pretexts.
On the flip side, lowercase-l libertarian voters will instantly recognize Sanford as a once-potential presidential nominee. In South Carolina, his record was undeniable, representing a brand of fusionism that worked.
So does this work? Is Sanford back in the wake of Rubio, Paul, Jindal, and the other Young Turks? Or is this a non-starter?
