COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

In an appeal to supporters, First Congressional District Republican nominee and former Gov. Mark Sanford published a list of unredacted telephone numbers who called a number he published in a recent ad in The Charleston Post and Courier.

In the fundraising e-mail, Sanford assails his opponent, Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, and attacks House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi because of an e-mail from the House Majority PAC, a Democratic Super PAC, that urged Democrats to call Sanford's number.

"This is part of a continued effort by Pelosi to buy another vote for her return to the Speakership," said Sanford in the e-mail.

A screenshot provided by the Sanford campaign shows just over 28 unredacted telephone numbers from all over the country that tried to get in touch with the ex-governor.

Sanford has received plenty of attention over the last few days as he continues his efforts at a political comeback. 

On Sunday, he published the aforementioned newspaper ad to tell readers about his "rough week" after allegations surfaced he had trespassed at the home belonging to his ex-wife, Jenny Sanford.

On Wednesday, he stood outside of the Medical University of South Carolina and attempted to debate a cardboard cutout of Pelosi because he said Colbert Busch was unwilling to debate him more than just once.

Sanford and Colbert Busch are tangling over the First District seat that once belonged to Tim Scott. The polls open on May 7.
