From public appearances with Terri McAuliffe, to chatter in DC parlors, (“she would call me if she DIDN’T want me to raise money for her PAC”), sightings at Union station (“Does she look healthy?”). We think she’ll run. Let us know what you think and would you support her?

South Carolina is the place to be tonight! Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford will be the Republican nominee after defeating former Charleston County Council member Curtis Bostic in a primary runoff on Tuesday for the state’s vacant 1st Congressional District seat. Indeed, South Carolina’s first district typically favors a Republican… any Republican to win the seat. However, now the traditionally RED Charleston seat is under contention. Elizabeth Colbert Busch, Director of Business Development at Clemson University’s Restoration Institute and sister of comedian Stephen Colbert, (also nominated by the South Carolina Working Families Party) is recently pulling ahead in the polls.

Brother Stephen is doing his part to help sister, Lulu.  With events planned in both New York and Washington D.C., we are betting on LULU. Do you agree?

Finally, the rumor mill is abuzz regarding who will clinch which ambassadorship. Caroline Kennedy and Marc Lasry are leading contenders for plumb spots. The price of an ambassadorship? Have a look at the NYT recent study.
