Andre Bauer said in an interview that he was prepared to be governor should Gov.

Mark Sanford resign in the wake of disclosing an extramarital affair.

"I think that when you run for lieutenant governor that if you're not prepared to be governor, then you shouldn't run," Bauer, like Sanford a Republican, told POLITICO.

But Bauer, who has a cold relationship with Sanford and on�Monday demanded to know his whereabouts, wouldn't say if he thinks the governor should resign.

He said: "I'm as shocked as anybody, and I'm thinking about the governor and his family." Bauer is likely to run for governor next year when Sanford is term-limited out.

He said the news hadn't changed his political plans.

Asked what it means for the political landscape next year, he said: "I don't know." Bauer was far from the Columbia capitol where Sanford confessed his affair, attending the Spartanburg funeral of Warren Abernathy, a former top aide to the late Strom Thurmond.

"I didn't see it," Bauer said twice when pressed about Sanford's tearful news conference.
