Colbert Busch debate zinger keeps focus on Sanford- USA TODAY

Though running out front in a recent opinion survey, Colbert Busch didn’t play it safe, said Gibbs Knotts, a political scientist at the College of Charleston.

“She went after him in a lot of ways. He’s got to be very relieved to be talking about issues. Any time he’s talking about federal spending, the size of government, he does best,” Knotts said. But the candidates’ answers on social issues were helpful for voters, he added, since the candidates have focused heavily on the economy, jobs and federal spending.
