Sanfords' split ends a political partnership

Gov. Mark Sanford lost more than a wife when Jenny Sanford filed for divorce Friday. He lost an important political adviser as well, one he said kept him grounded amid the trappings of high office. Jenny Sanford has been described as the force behind her husband's political career, but those who worked with or observed Mark Sanford said that probably exaggerated her influence.
