Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer helped push the "Where's Sanford" story along, letting it be known that he was indignant that he hadn't been informed that the governor had left the state and that he hadn't been put in charge.
Bauer wants to win the top job next year (or sooner) and clearly chafed at the fact that Sanford had all but endorsed a rival, state Rep. Nikki Haley, calling her a "terrific and inspiring choice."
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
