CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch is not commenting on the most recent dust up between former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford and his ex-wife.

Mark Sanford said Wednesday he visited his ex-wife's home while she was out of town in February because he didn't want his 14-year-old son to watch the Super Bowl alone. Jenny Sanford says the visit violated their divorce settlement, and Mark Sanford must appear before a family court judge next month.

Colbert Busch is running against Sanford for the vacant 1st District congressional seat. She refused to comment about Sanford, even though she was asked several times by reporters after visiting a Mount Pleasant diner.

She says her campaign is focusing on the positive and on bringing in new jobs to the district on the state's south coast.
