CHARLESTON, S.C. -- No joke: Comedian Stephen Colbert's sister is running in earnest for a vacant South Carolina congressional seat.
Campaign manager Bill Romjue said Friday that Elizabeth Colbert-Busch plans to file as a Democrat next week and make a formal announcement. She did not immediately return messages from The Associated Press.
Colbert-Busch will file as a Democrat seeking the vacant 1st District seat. Colbert-Busch is a Charleston native like her brother and development director at the Clemson University Restoration Institute in nearby North Charleston.
