S.C. Sen. Tom Davis raised $120,000 at a mega-fundraiser in Bluffton, S.C. this week – a pretty impressive haul considering the Lowcountry fiscal conservative wasn’t taking money from political action committees.
But Davis’ event wasn’t the biggest Palmetto political fundraiser this week. That title belongs to S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley – who took in at least $150,000 at a Lexington, S.C. fundraiser hosted by real estate developer Ted McGee.
Haley – who recently concluded fundraising trips to Pennsylvania and New York – has ramped up her fundraising efforts since formally kicking off her 2014 reelection bid last month in Greenville, S.C.
According to the latest campaign finance reports, Haley has $2.4 million on hand to spend on her reelection bid.
Pretty impressive …
Haley is also likely to receive millions more from national “Republican” groups eager to ensure that one of the party’s few female minority candidates isn’t knocked off.
