WATCH LIVE: Mark Sanford And Elizabeth Colbert-Busch Face Off In South Carolina Congressional Debate

Republican Mark Sanford and Democrat Elizabeth Colbert-Busch will meet at The Citadel in Charleston tonight for their first and only debate before the special election next month for South Carolina’s first congressional district. Sanford has evidently been itching for a face-to-face showdown with his opponent as evidenced by the mock debate he held with a life-size poster of stand-in House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) last week. The latest polls show Colbert-Busch with a 9 point lead over Sanford.

The debate between the two candidates is scheduled to begin at 7pm ET and you can watch the whole thing live-streaming below:
