Jenny Sanford - Mark Sanford


Jenny Sanford is a wife of South Carolina Governor, Mark Sanford. Jenny Sanford was born and raised in Winnetka, Illinois and has a bachelor’s degree in finance from Georgetown University. After college, she worked for the investment banking firm Lazard Freres & Co in New York from 1984 through 1990, including serving as vice president in mergers and acquisitions.

The Sanfords then moved from New York to the Charleston area where Mrs. Sanford balanced raising a family, managing her husband Mark’s political campaigns and being active in the non-profit community. In 1994, Mrs. Sanford managed her husband Mark’s successful campaign for Congress, the couple’s first foray into the political arena. Mrs. Sanford also managed his winning gubernatorial campaign in 2002, assisted him daily at the Statehouse during his first term as governor, and co-managed his successful reelection in 2006.

Jenny Sanford perhaps the person who ended up the most damaged after the affair of his husband. Although the news of this affair just came to the public today, we know that Jenny knew of this problem for some time, and they have been dealing with this.

Today is a press conference Governor Sanford apologized to Jenny and his kids.
