Will Boeing's announcement help S.C. governor stay in office?

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford immediately issued a statement yesterday following Boeing’s decision to put a second  787 assembly line in his state. Sanford hailed the move as the biggest economic development effort in South Carolina’s history.

I wonder whether the coup will help save Sanford’s political career.

Talk of his impeachment began last summer after it came to light that he had secretly spent  five-days in Argentina with his girlfriend. When he returned, he admitted to a year-long extramarital affair.

I wonder whether the Boeing win will temper the impeachment sentiment.
