National Democrats slammed S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley (RINO-Lexington) with a new internet ad as she prepared to formally launch her 2014 reelection bid.
The ad – produced by the Democratic Governor’s Association (DGA) – hits Haley on a number of different issues, most notably her administration’s failure to protect sensitive tax information in last year’s S.C. Department of Revenue (SCDOR) hacking scandal. The ad also mocks Haley for relying on a trio of out-of-state GOP governors – Bobby Jindal of Louisiana, Rick Perry of Texas and Scott Walker of Wisconsin – as criticism-deflecting props at her kickoff event.
“With the errors, scandals, and job losses under Nikki Haley, it’s no wonder her support at home is so weak that she has to be propped up by out-of-state governors at her reelection rally,” said DGA communications director Danny Kramer. “But there’s a glitch in her plan: calling in political celebrities won’t make South Carolinians forget the economic struggles, ethics scandals, and incompetence that have defined Haley’s administration.”
Here’s the DGA spot …

Haley rode into office three years ago on a Tea Party wave promising less spending and more transparency in government. However she’s turned into a big-spending, crony capitalist “Republican in Name Only” – not to mention the most opaque , hypocritical governor the Palmetto State has ever seen.
She’s also failed to make good on her promise to help elect more fiscal conservatives to the S.C. General Assembly … which is the only way South Carolina is ever going to truly change for the better.
In fact the choice between Haley and S.C. Senator Vincent Sheheen isn’t really a choice … it’s a guaranteed continuation of the same policies which continue to hold South Carolina back.
No matter who wins that race … South Carolina taxpayers, businesses and children are going to wind up losers. Again.
