Nikki Haley won the runoff the GOP nomination to run for Governor in South Carolina. This was a bare knuckled dirty campaign. A blogger made accusations of an affair and much was made out of her conversion to Christianity 13 years ago.
Nikki is a no nonsense conservative that could be a rising star in the GOP down the road. She is a tea party favorite, too!!
South Carolina is a conservative leaning state, so she has a good chance of becoming the first female governor in that state. She won the nomination with 65% of the vote.
Congrats to Nikki.
