NATIONAL BRIEFING / SOUTH CAROLINA

Times Wire Reports

The wife of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford moved out of the official governor's residence with their four sons, a little more than a month after he admitted to a yearlong affair with an Argentine woman he called his "soul mate."

Jenny Sanford and several other women moved bags of clothes, a suitcase and armloads of suits and dresses on hangers from the governor's mansion in Columbia before departing in a caravan of sport utility vehicles. Three of the four boys were present, carrying tote and duffel bags.

The governor, who spoke to reporters elsewhere in the state, said the move was a mutual decision.
