President Donald Trump ripped a South Carolina Republican congressman who has opposed the president in the past -- and made light of his 2009 extramarital affair that occurred while he was governor of the state.
On Fox News Sunday, Congressman-elect Mark Sanford spoke about his recent comeback after an extramarital affair while he was governor of South Carolina.
The House Republican Campaign Committee stopped backing Sanford for congressman when there were reports that he had violated his divorce agreement by watching the Superbowl with his son at his ex-wife’s house.
