      Former SC first lady returns to campaign trail

      CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford is going out on the campaign trail again.

      Sanford, who divorced Gov. Mark Sanford earlier this year, campaigns on the South Carolina coast on Friday for GOP gubernatorial hopeful Nikki Haley.

      The two have planned public appearances in Charleston and Myrtle Beach - both in the congressional district Mark Sanford once represented. There are also private events in Charleston and Hilton Head.

      Jenny Sanford divorced her husband after he disappeared for five days last summer, returning to the state to admit an affair with an Argentine woman. The governor said he saw that woman again last weekend in Florida.

      Haley is one of four candidates seeking the GOP nomination for governor.
