MOUNT PLEASANT — Former Gov. Mark Sanford spent lunchtime looking for votes in the 1st congressional district Republican primary at a familiar place, the Sticky Fingers restaurant where he celebrated his 2002 gubernatorial win.

Joining him for lunch is Keith Blandford, a former candidate who is now endorsing Sanford.

Sanford will face Curtis Bostic in the April 2 runoff for a chance to face Democrat candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch in the general election.

He and Blandford are working the room, greeting diners and asking for their support in the primary.
