Probably not the kind of publicity he was looking for but a week before South Carolina’s special congressional election.

Republican candidate and former Governor Mark Sanford is getting big support from the founder of an internet site promoting extra-marital affairs.

The billboard headlines state, “Next time use ashleymadison.com to find your running mate.”

It’s a play on Sanford’s extra-marital affair with an Argentinean woman to whom he’s now engaged.

The dating site stated it has plans for several additional South Carolina billboards before next Tuesday’s elections.
