COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) is endorsing former South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford in his bid for Congress.

Boehner's office released a statement calling Sanford "a clear choice," saying he will work "tirelessly to expand opportunities for all Americans."

Sanford is running against Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch for the seat in South Carolina's 1st Congressional District.

The voters will decide the race in a special election next month.

Sanford finished his second term as governor in 2009 after admitting to an extramarital affair with a woman that is now his fiancée.
