Nikki Haley Intends to Govern
The legislature and Governor in South Carolina have had a rather fractious relationship for the past decade. The Governor during that period has typically broken up the good old boy network and actually fought to reduce government in South Carolina and privatize what could be privatized. Well, recently there’s been a port expansion issue affecting Georgia and South Carolina. Georgia wants to deepen the Savannah | Read More »
Andre Bauer’s unfortunate endorsement of Newt Gingrich. [UPDATE]
[Please note the edit below: the implication in the CNN article was that Bauer's endorsement of Gingrich was welcomed by the campaign, but there's still wiggle room for Team Newt. I've emailed the Gingrich campaign to confirm. - Moe Lane] Team Newt announced today that they [CNN reported today that the Gingrich campaign] had picked up the endorsement of Andre Bauer, who is: a former | Read More »
North Carolinian Nathan Shafer arrested for threatening life of Gov. Nikki Haley (R, SC)…
…but the white guy insists that it’s not a big deal that he publicly posted a promise to murder an Indian-American female governor if nobody else does. “I hope someone murders you before I do,” Shafer said he commented on the post. “How’s that for freedom of speech?” (H/T: Verum Serum) Well… not to editorialize here or anything, but since Nathan Shafer asked: it’s [a] | Read More »
Nikki Haley Responds to the NLRB’s Mandate to Post Union Notices
On the news that the job-destroying National Labor Relations Board is mandating employers in all 50 states to post notices advising employees of their rights to unionize (and destroy more jobs), South Carolina’s Governor Nikki Haley posted the following response on her Facebook page: Right next to that sign that is being mandated by Barack Obama’s union cheerleaders at the NLRB, I encourage all S.C. | Read More »
Reflecting on the RedState Gathering
This past weekend I had the pleasure of, once again, attending the RedState Gathering. I began my 90 mile drive to the nearest airport at 4 am Friday morning. Two flights later and I was in Charleston before lunch. I arrived at the hotel and checked in to my room before meeting up with Erick and Neil to go to Staples and Chick-Fil-A. This was | Read More »

RS Gathering 2011: Nikki Haley.
As always, we try to take the time to talk briefly with some of the candidates and politicians that attend the RedState Gathering. As Governor Halley was so kind as to host us this year, I thought that I’d start with her. Governor Haley has of course been long a friend of the site, and it was a pleasure to have her welcome us to | Read More »
NYT uses bad guesser Jack Bass to attack Nikki Haley.
I will admit that the New York Times largely did not attack South Carolina governor Nikki Haley (R) all that harshly in this article; in fact, they said some things that were actually complimentary (given that the governor is openly going after entrenched Republican interests in SC, that’s probably not a surprise). But they couldn’t quite resist playing silly games by getting local liberal political | Read More »
RedState Interview: Gov. Nikki Haley (R, SC).
We talked this afternoon on South Carolina’s Spending Accountability Act (which was formally signed into law today). To refresh people’s memories: Governor Haley had campaigned in part on a platform of transparency, with a specific focus on the South Carolinian legislature’s ability to vote on funding issues without their votes actually going on the record. The Governor has long been a proponent of reversing this, | Read More »
Will Folks: Blogging School Boy Fantasies
Will Folks. Remember him? Probably not, but I’m going to remind you anyway. [Background here, here, here, here, and here.] He’s the South Carolina blogger who attempted to destroy Nikki Haley’s political career by making unsubstantiated claims that he “inappropriately” interacted with Haley. Folks did not provide evidence, mind you, he just made the spurious claim proving that he’s not only a pathetic political hack, | Read More »
Unions Sue Nikki Haley in Her First Week in Office
Nikki Haley, Governor of South Carolina and Redstate Gathering attendee, has barely stepped foot into office and the AFL-CIO has deemed fit to use their dues to sue her for expressing her intent to prevent job-killing unions from invading South Carolina which incidentally is a right to work state. The Governor’s response is refreshingly honest and bold as she essentially tells them to shove their | Read More »
Nikki Haley’s Inaugural Speech.
Nikki Haley was sworn in today as South Carolina governor, and of all the annoyances that the Left has been trying to inflict upon us for the last few days over their petulant inability to dictate what can and cannot be said, this one grates most: they made me forget that briefly. We at RedState have been waiting for this moment for quite some time, | Read More »
Why Governors Matter: Nikki Haley Takes on Barack Obama
Nikki Haley is just so awesome. At a White House gathering for the new governors, Governor-Elect Haley confronted Mr. Obama and asked him to repeal Obamacare. Obama refused so Haley said she wanted an opt-out for South Carolina. She made sure the White House knew she was going to fight every step of the way on this. What is more awesome is that she demanded | Read More »
Gawker’s Misogynistic Smear of O’Donnell So Vile, Left Shamed Into Condemning It. But, Did They Really?
Gawker, that pit of disgusting, published an anonymous hit piece on Christine O’Donnell today. I refuse to link to it; y’all can google and find it yourself. I’m a mean girl like that. The ‘exclusive’ – exclusive in this case meaning only Gawker was vile enough to publish, and pay for, such a thing – was a tale told by an idiot. A piggish, pitiful | Read More »
Stand With Nikki Haley
Friends, in just a few days we have the chance to be a part of a national earthquake election to help save our country from fiscal disaster. On Tuesday, we have the opportunity to elect principled conservatives that will be part of the next generation of American leaders. I’ve been proud to support conservative candidates around the nation and in my home state that will | Read More »
