Former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) will seek the open congressional seat in his home state, CNN reported Thursday.

A Republican source tells CNN that the former governor is likely to announce any day that he will run for the seat left vacant by Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), who was appointed by Gov. Nikki Haley (R) to replace outgoing Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) in the upper chamber early next year. DeMint announced earlier this month that he was leaving the Senate to become the president of the Heritage Foundation, a conservative think tank.

Goose Creek Patch confirmed CNN’s report.

"Sanford is dead serious about this run," a former aide told Patch. "His dire predictions on America’s fiscal future have come true. I wouldn’t want to be running against him."

A primary will be held in early March. Teddy Turner, a Republican, announced his intention to run earlier this week, and several others have hinted at entering the race.
