Nikki Haley Endorsing Larry Martin
“TEA PARTY” GOVERNOR TO ENDORSE LONGTIME FISCAL LIBERAL IN STATE SENATE RACE
S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley will endorse fiscal liberal (and former Democrat) Larry Martin in a competitive State Senate race in the Palmetto Upstate, multiple sources have confirmed to FITS.
Martin, a thirty-year incumbent, is currently in the fight of his life against former S.C. Rep. Rex Rice – a petition candidate. In fact a barrage of television ads (courtesy of our founding editor) have helped expose Martin as a hypocrite on fiscal issues - putting his campaign in panic mode.
Hence “Haley to the rescue.”
During her 2010 campaign, Haley vowed that she “wouldn’t stop” until South Carolina had a “more conservative House” and a “more conservative Senate.” How does an endorsement of Martin mesh with that promise? Not well …
Martin has fared abysmally on numerous report cards – including one released last week by the Palmetto Liberty PAC. He also received an “F” on an Upstate Tea Party scorecard. In 2011 the S.C. Club for Growth – a group which supports Haley – gave Martin an “F-minus” on its scorecard.
What, exactly, is the governor doing endorsing him?
Good question …
