MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) — The National Republican Congressional Committee says it’s not spending any additional money to support Mark Sanford‘s bid for a congressional seat in South Carolina.

Committee spokeswoman says Sanford has proven he knows what it takes to win elections. She says the group won’t be engaged in the contest.

The decision was first reported by Politico.

The NRCC made its move hours after The Associated Press reported that Jenny Sanford had filed a court complaint accusing the former governor of trespassing at her home on Sullivans Island.

Republicans were blindsided by the news and made the decision not to spend more money on his race after concluding that it would be difficult for Sanford to make inroads with women voters and win.
