(Newser) – Mark Sanford doesn't shy away from the Argentina-mistress scandal that abruptly ended his tenure as governor of South Carolina in his first television ad for the 1st District congressional race. After pointing out that he has a history of fighting government spending, he says he recently "experienced how none of us go through life without mistakes." But such errors let us learn about the "God of second chances" he says. He ends by "humbly" asking for votes.
