S.C. GOP primary heads to runoff – Teddy Turner on his race and who he thinks will win against Colbert Busch

It all comes down to two in South Carolina's extra special special election.

Fmr. Gov. Mark Sanford will move forward into a run-off in the election to replace Rep. Tim Scott. But it's still not clear who Sanford will face in the Republican run-off.

The close race for a second triggered a recount, and whoever wins will go up against Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, sister of Comedy Central host Stephen Colbert. She was the runaway winner of the Democratic primary.

Teddy Turner, son of CNN founder Ted Turner, finished fourth in a GOP field of 16. He talks with John and Christine on "Starting Point" this morning to talk about the race.
