Welcome Back, Mark Sanford! | Capitol Quip


Illustrator R.J. Matson’s latest cartoon needs a caption.

Rep.-elect Mark Sanford, R-S.C., completed the latest leg of his comeback hike last week by winning a special election to replace now-Sen. Tim Scott. It’s a homecoming for Sanford, who served in the House from 1995 to 2001. His colleagues must be thrilled to have someone with such experience in their ranks! What do you think Sanford will say as he heads back to Capitol Hill?

Leave us your caption in the comments section below. Editors will pick five finalists Wednesday, and then everyone can vote for the winner until Thursday afternoon. The winner gets a signed print from Matson.
