There were not many D.C.-area players who were on Mark Sanford‘s team for the South Carolina special election, but former Seattle Seahawk receiver Steve Largent helped Sanford’s team win.
Largent was in Congress when Sanford served from 1995 to 2001. They were both participants in “C Street”, a Christian accountability ministry that works with members of Congress. It was based at a house on C Street Southeast near the Capitol. Largent is now president/CEO of CTIA-The Wireless Association. CTIA-The Wireless Association PAC (D.C.) gave $1,000. Largent’s wife, Terry, also gave $1,000.
Also contributing to Sanford were the following D.C.-area donors:
Frederic Malek (chairman, Thayer Lodging Group, D.C.) gave $2,500.
The Boeing Company PAC (Va.) gave $5,000.
The Club for Growth (D.C.) gave $5,200.
The National Rifle Association of America PAC (Va.) gave $2,000.
Edwin Williamson (retired, but Of Counsel, Sullivan & Cromwell, D.C.) gave $1,000.
The Country First PAC, the PAC of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., gave $2,500.
The campaign committee of Rep. Pete Session, R-Texas, gave $2,000.
The Fund for America’s Future, the PAC of Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., gave $2,500.
