MOUNT PLEASANT, SC -

Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford has cleared another hurdle in his bid for a political comeback, defeating a former county council member to win the GOP nomination for a vacant U.S. House seat.
    
With 78 percent of precincts reporting, Sanford had about 58 percent of the vote to 41 percent for Curtis Bostic, a former Charleston County Council member. The candidates were vying Tuesday in a GOP runoff in the 1st Congressional District, which covers the south coast.
    
Sanford will face Elizabeth Colbert (kohl-BURT') Busch and Green Party candidate Eugene Platt in a May special election. She is the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert  (kohl-BEHR').
    
Sanford's political career was derailed four years ago by his admission of an extramarital affair.
