Gov. Sanford plans farewell tour of SC

Governor Mark Sanford Governor Mark Sanford

COLUMBIA, SC - Gov. Mark Sanford plans to spend most of his final full week in office crisscrossing South Carolina to thank his supporters.

Sanford will start his farewell tour Tuesday with breakfast in Rock Hill. He will also release one final budget proposal to legislators at a stop in Spartanburg later in the day.

"Almost 10 years ago, we began our first grassroots campaign for governor by traveling the highways and dirt roads of this state and meeting hard-working South Carolinians where they lived, where they worked, and where they ate," said Gov. Sanford. "We're going to end this Administration the same way we began it -- by going from one corner of the state to the other, touching base with people from all walks of life, connecting with friends old and new, and saying 'thank you' for the grace and support extended to me and my family over the years."

"I'd wish each and every South Carolinian the best in the New Year, and invite them to stop by any of the events," said Sanford.

Sanford will travel from Anderson to Hilton Head Island, and from Murrells Inlet along the Grand Strand to the state's smallest county with a stop in McCormick along the Georgia state line.

Sanford has 10 events in all planned over the next seven days.

Here is a list of public events the outgoing governor will attend:
