The South Carolina lawmaker tweeted that he is giving away pocket Constitutions to those who come to his door.

“Happy Halloween,” he tweeted. “Accordingly, Pocket Constitutions are at the ready for today’s trick-or-treaters.”

 

Sanford, the former governor of South Carolina, lost an election for the first time earlier this year, when he was defeated in his GOP primary by state Rep. Katie Arrington.

The primary became a referendum on Sanford’s criticism of President TrumpDonald John TrumpFacebook releases audit on conservative bias claims Harry Reid: 'Decriminalizing border crossings is not something that should be at the top of the list' Recessions happen when presidents overlook key problems MORE. He was a frequent critic of the president and was one of the few GOP lawmakers to call on Trump to release his tax returns.

Trump notably endorsed Sanford’s opponent at the last minute, in a tweet that came just hours before polls closed.

Cook Political Report ranks the race for the open seat between Arrington and her Democratic opponent, attorney and engineer Joe Cunningham, as "lean Republican."
