Gov. Nikki Haley Will Be There

    The time is running out for you to meet Nikki Haley. Governor Haley was at the very first RedState Gathering. We rallied after that Gathering to get her elected. And we’ve been supporting her ever since. Gov. Haley has also been to just about every RedState Gathering. This year she is in the middle of her re-election campaign. But she wants to meet you guys | Read More »

    An Almost High School Dropout

    An Almost High School Dropout

    As a parent, when I think of school choice, I naturally think of how it applies to my children. Recently, however, I came across the news that the South Carolina Senate Education Committee passed a bill allowing students to attend public school in another district if they desire. Immediately I was taken back to my own public school experience and the fact that having a choice | Read More »

    Mick Mulvaney: The New Lindsey Graham

    Mick Mulvaney: The New Lindsey Graham

    Folks, for all of you relying on House “conservatives” to save us from becoming an open borders utopia just know that we’ve got a serious problem.  I sincerely thought that, although there is some disagreement over what to do with those here from the second great wave of illegal immigration, all Republicans would unite to stop Obama’s egregious facilitation of a third great invasion.  Sadly, | Read More »

    South Carolina Republican Primary “Endorsements”

    In a very anticipated primary on Tuesday, South Carolina voters will go to the polls to choose Republican candidates for two US Senate seats and two contested congressional seats- one held by a Democrat and one held by an incumbent Republican.

    The primary is just around the corner in South Carolina. If you have not made up your mind who to support, let me suggest Pat McKinney.

I want to make sure you guys in South Carolina know, though, that | Read More »

    Idols of Our Destruction

    People, regardless of demographic, are into idols. We have cults of personality, standards by which we judge all comers, issues (not principles) on which we will not compromise, and the ideal of the nation itself. Not all are idols, but all can be idols. In political seasons, we make idols of our candidates — they are flawless, pure, and indestructible. That is until they are | Read More »

    Det Bowers

    This will shock most of you. I like Lindsey Graham. Always have for that matter. He’s always been very pleasant to me. We’ve shared a few common fights. And I respect that he is not as willing as some of his colleagues to shift his positions on all things merely for the sake of re-election. But I disagree with Lindsey Graham on immigration. I disagree | Read More »

    Calling out Politicians for FAILURE.

    I am frequently very hard on our politicians in South Carolina; Let me explain why. I have interviewed a number of them. Most of them really are a bit delusional. Their hearts are in the right place on issues, but they have an unrealistic view of how to get things done for the residents. Many South Carolina politicians are living in the 1980s. I grew | Read More »

Mr. Outten hired Vincent Sheheen, who negotiated down Outten’s term to 38 days. Outten was arrested 13 more times, including twice for being in hotel rooms with alcohol and underage | Read More »

    South Carolina Is About To Get Interesting

    Out of all the Republican primaries taking place across the country, there is only one that I have taken an active interest in seeing a particular outcome. Senator Lindsey Graham has given voters a litany of reasons to doubt his loyalty to the ideals of small government conservatism. But really it boils down to this: why should we have to have a “good enough” Senator | Read More »

    Nasty South Carolinian bigot Dick Harpootlian visited White House.

    Way to bury the lead there, Wall Street Journal. Forget various Democrats whining about where that sweet, sweet campaign contribution money is going: this is a bit more pressing. [Dick] Harpootlian said he visited Joe Biden, the other most prominent potential 2016 contestant, in the White House about a month ago and told the vice president he would support him if he decides to run.

    Ready to Commit?

    In Georgia, today we’re learning that Michelle Nunn, the Democrat running for the United States Senate, has stockpiled massive amounts of cash with the help of, not just Democrats, but big government Republicans. Next door, the Democrats and bad Republicans are doing the same against Nikki Haley.Now is the time to stand with those who stand with us. Now is the time to support Nikki | Read More »

    Reboot and Recommit for 2014.  Support @NikkiHaley.

    As many of you settle back into your office chairs this morning, understand this: the left still dominates the right in online fundraising. They are able to fund and support candidates online in a way we can only dream about. And they intend to harness the power of the online left to support candidates in states around the country. One of those states is going | Read More »
