Mark Sanford's plea for forgiveness succeeded with South Carolina voters on Tuesday, and now his Republican colleagues will have to decide whether they, too, can forgive him.
House Republican leaders are quietly working with Mitt Romney's campaign to fashion a unified GOP health care platform to replace President Obama's health law, according to lawmakers involved in the effort.
"Many of our congressional campaigns - including Boehner's -- have also been very active in helping mobilize millions of voters for the GOP ticket back in their districts," said Mr. Boehner's political spokesman Cory Fritz. "In states like Ohio where we're anticipating a close race, our ground-game efforts will make a big difference on Nov. 6."
Mr. Fritz said that by this weekend, the GOP's Ohio Victory team, which the congressional delegation has all supported, expects to exceed 3.5 million voter contacts.
