Governor of South Carolina

First term

He entered the gubernatorial election of 2002; he first defeated Lt. Gov. Bob Peeler in the Republican primary and then defeated the Democratic incumbent, Jim Hodges, in the general election, by a margin of 53% to 47% to become the 115th Governor of South Carolina. In accordance with South Carolina law, Sanford was elected separately from the state's Republican lieutenant governor, Andre Bauer.

André Bauer (born March 20, 1969) is an American politician who has been the Lieutenant Governor of South Carolina since 2003. ...


Governor Sanford has sometimes had a contentious relationship with the SC General Assembly -even though it is dominated by his own party (and controlled since 1995). The Republican led SC House of Representatives overrode 105 of Sanford's 106 budget vetoes on May 26, 2004. The following day, Sanford brought live pigs into the House chamber as a visual protest against "pork projects". The pigs shat on the House floor. The South Carolina General Assembly, also called the South Carolina Legislature, is the legislative branch of South Carolina and consists of the South Carolina House of Representatives and the South Carolina Senate. ... The South Carolina House of Representatives is the lower house of the South Carolina General Assembly. ... Pork barrel, in a literal sense, is a barrel in which pork is kept, but figuratively is a supply of money; often the source of ones livelihood. ...


He also rejected the Assembly's entire budget on June 13, 2006. Had this veto stood, the state government would have shut down on July 1st. The governor explained his veto as being the only way to get the cuts he desired, and that using the line item veto would have been inadequate as well as impossible. However, in a special session the following day, both houses dismissed Sanford's call for reform by overriding his veto -effectively restoring their original budget (which indeed contained many reforms Sanford had previously called for).


Sanford professes to be a firm supporter of limited government, and many pundits have described his views as being libertarian in nature. There are several Internet based groups trying to convince him to run for president in 2008. Most recently, he has embarked on an ambitious plan to reform methods of funding the state's public education system. This would include measures such as school vouchers -aimed at introducing more competition into the school system as a means of fostering improvement. This would also allow more choice for parents who wish for their children to be educated in a religious or independent setting easier access at doing so. The plan, known as "Put Parents In Charge," would provide around $2,500 per child to parents who chose to withdraw their children from the state's public school system and instead send them to religious and other independent schools. Sanford has framed this plan as a necessary market based reform. See also Libertarianism and Libertarian Party Libertarian,is a term for person who has made a conscious and principled commitment, evidenced by a statement or Pledge, to forswear violating others rights and usually living in voluntary communities: thus in law no longer subject to government supervision. ... Idiot is a word derived from the Greek , idiōtēs (layman, person lacking professional skill, a private citizen, individual), from , idios (private, ones own).[1] In Latin the word idiota (ordinary person, layman) preceded the Late Latin meaning uneducated or ignorant person. ...


Sanford has also sought to reform the state's public college system. Schools such as Clemson University and the University of South Carolina have repeatedly increased tuition yearly -making them the costliest schools on average in the South. They claim these increases are necessary to encourage research projects and development due to the State Legislature not fully funding them. Sanford has criticized these schools as focusing too much on separately creating research institutions and not on educating the young adults of South Carolina. Sanford has suggested that they combine some programs as a means of curbing tuition increases. The schools did not respond positively to this suggestion, however, causing Sanford to remark that if they do not like the idea of change then the schools could "go private." Carolina Forest High School is located in Horry County, South Carolina in the rapidly developing Carolina Forest attendance area. ... A nursery school is a school for the education of very young children (generally five years of age and younger). ... Southern United States The states shown in dark red are usually included in the South, while all or portions of the striped states may or may not be considered part of the Southern United States. ...


Sanford's tenure has not been free of controversy. He was criticized for missing a budget debate and was harshly criticized by a Greenville News article for not taking a proactive stance on and delays in signing a piece of domestic violence legislation. A CNN Time Magazine Nov. 2005 article, also critical of Sanford, cited that some "fear his thrift has brought the state's economy to a standstill."


Sanford's approval rating ranges from 47% to 55% over the past year according to Survey USA [1]. SurveyUSA is a polling firm in the United States. ...


Relection and second term

The campaign for South Carolina gubernatorial election, 2006 began by Sanford winning the June 13th Republican Primary over Oscar Lovelace, a family physician from Prosperity, with 65 percent of the vote to Lovelace's 35. His Democratic competition in the November elections was state senator Tommy Moore, who won the Democratic primary. Sanford won re-election, beating Democrat Tommy Moore by 55%-45%.

Willis in the June 13, 2006 Democratic Primary. ...


On election day (7 November 2006) Sanford was not allowed to vote in his home precinct because he did not have his voter registration card. The governor was obliged to go to a voter registration office to get a new registration card. "I hope everybody else out there is as determined to vote as I was today," he said. The governor's driver's license had a Columbia, SC address, yet Sanford was trying to vote in Sullivan's Island.
