    S.C. House District 1 special election debate on April 29, 2013:
  • Coverage by TheState.com: "Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch portrayed her Republican rival Mark Sanford as a dishonest job-killer who voted against the dredging of the Charleston port during a debate Monday, while Sanford characterized her as a wishy-washy union-backer who relies on special interest money from House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other national Democrats.

  • "Monday's debate at The Citadel, sponsored by Patch and the S.C. Radio Network, was the sole face-off between the two 1st District congressional candidates before next Tuesday's special election to fill the vacancy created by Tim Scott's appointment to the U.S. Senate."

  • Long Island News12 coverage: "Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, trying to revive his political career, and Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch traded verbal jabs on his past indiscretions and her liberal political supporters during a spirited debate Monday night--their only scheduled meeting in the race for the state's vacant 1st Congressional District seat."

  • Post-Bulletin coverage: "Until now, Democratic candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch had refused to bring up Sanford's personal past. But on Monday, their only joint appearance in the race for the vacant 1st Congressional District in South Carolina, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert pounced on the opportunity."
