Update: Latest media tweets indicate the press conference has been postponed until 2:30 p.m., while the event is shifted to the Capitol’s more spacious rotunda.
Locked in your cubicle and want to hear the details of Gov. Mark Sanford’s hike through Argentina? C-SPAN just announced it will carry the South Carolina governor’s 2 p.m. press conference live, through this link.
If you’re in D.C., the event will be carried on old-fashioned radio at 90.1 FM.
One political web site in South Carolina is currently speculating that Sanford’s trip to South America has roots in domestic unhappiness.
Will Folks, a former spokesman for Sanford, wrote on his blog FITS that the governor and his wife Jenny have been in marital counseling “for several weeks now.”
“This story got legs when the First Lady started talking,” a source close to the Sanfords tells FITS. “When she said she didn’t know where he was – and wasn’t concerned, that’s when people’s ears perked up.”
