Rather than detail all the developments, we think you'd be better served to have a connection to the most important and interesting angles.

- Ready? Let's go:
- Sanford's still saying he has no plans to resign.
- During a recent business trip for the state, Sanford met with the woman in Argentina. The governor says he'll repay the $8,000. -- Here's another angle on that, and another.
- Some details have surfaced about the Argentine mistress.
- Political leaders are hesitant to see Sanford resign. Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer would then become governor, and the GOP would likely be stuck with Bauer during the 2010 election.
- Still, a lot of people with influence are in wait-and-see mode.
- But the Island Packet says there are too many unknowns and that we should be investigating what happened and not guessing -- they also echo the fearsome thought of Bauer as governor.
- Bauer, for his two cents, is saying he doesn't want to see Sanford resign either.
- And there's also the question of how the world came to know of the affair, and why The State took so long to reveal the e-mails.
- But, we'll likely know more about what's next in the saga when Sanford holds his cabinet meeting at 12:30 p.m. today, June 26. Watch it at Live5News.com.
