Almost four years after news broke of his affair with an Argentine woman and just three weeks after he reportedly trespassed in his ex-wife's house, Mark Sanford's remarkable political comeback is complete. On Tuesday night, he defeated Elizabeth Colbert Busch, sister of Stephen Colbert, in the race to fill South Carolina's vacant 1st Congressional District seat.

CNN called the race for Sanford at roughly 8:30 PM EST. Official results aren't yet in, but the Huffington Post has a good breakdown of the votes by county.

Your move, Anthony Weiner.

UPDATE: Busch has conceded.
