Stephen Colbert’s Sister To Run for Congress. No Joke!

 Wow. It looks like shaking things up runs in the Colbert family. This is going to be quite a race:

Stephen Colbert may have “run for president,” but his sister is actually going to run for Congress.
Elizabeth Colbert-Busch’s soon-to-be-official campaign has informed South Carolina Democratic Party executive director Amanda Loveday that it will file Tuesday for the special election for appointed Sen. Tim Scott’s (R-S.C.) old House seat, Loveday has told the Washington Post.

 But looking into her sparkling brown eyes, you’d never know this woman has seen enough tragedy for two lifetimes. Her infectious laugh fills the room as she talks about her children. Her face lights up every time she mentions Claus, her second husband and the man she calls the love of her life. And when she talks about her job, she speaks with a passion so great, you’d swear her boss was sitting next to her.

Colbert-Busch will very likely be an underdog against basically any Republican she would face for the seat. Scott’s district went just 40 percent for President Obama this year.
