Nikki Haley Wins Reelection (Not Yet, But It’s Coming …)

INCUMBENT “REPUBLICAN” CRUISING IN SOUTH CAROLINA … 

By FITSNEWS  ||  Despite shameless corruptionrampant mismanagement, galling hypocrisy and economic stagnation, S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley is cruising to reelection in the “Republican-controlled” Palmetto State.

Top line data from internal tracking polls provided exclusively to FITS show Haley with a ten-point edge over Democrat Vincent Sheheen – results that mirror the outcome of publicly released polls earlier this month.

Self-styled “independent Republican” Tom Ervin and Libertarian Steve French were both showing “some upward motion” following a gubernatorial debate last week – but nowhere near enough to move the needle.

“It’s over,” one Democratic consultant privately confided to FITS.

Underscoring Haley’s advantage?  A nearly 3-to-1 edge over Sheheen in available cash-on-hand as the election enters its final two weeks.

Haley’s campaign reported donations of $1.2 million during the recently concluded fundraising quarter.  That leaves her campaign with $1.4 million on hand over the next fourteen days.  By contrast, Sheheen’s campaign reported raising $800,000 during the recent quarter – but has only $578,000 on hand.

Yeah … ruh-roh.

FITS exclusively reported last week on Sheheen’s dwindling television advertising buys … now we see in black-and-white the reason behind the decline.

Of course it’s not like Sheheen’s ads were hitting the mark anyway …

Frankly, it’s inconceivable that we’re writing an article like this.  Haley’s record is abysmal, her poll numbers are weak and her political right flank was wide open for exploitation.  She should have been one of the most vulnerable incumbent governors in America … yet she’s going to win in a walk.

Go figure …

The continued use of quotation marks around the word “Republican” is irritating. It’s clear that some Republicans are more fiscally and/or socially liberal than others, and it’s always been that way. There are useless and corrupt Republican pols at all levels who are crooked as Grand Tango’s dick after a reach-around by a thug from da hood. Same is generally true of Democrats.

Will, since you no longer have any use for the GOP, and don’t call yourself a Republican, why do you hang on to this silly habit? Just say this asshole or that is a Republican and a shitty one and/or a corrupt one, and tell us why you feel that way.

“common decency”? Fits should have banned you for posting that arrest picture of “private citizen” Tom Davis from Georgetown County several weeks ago and mocking his alleged drunkeness and living situation. Really sad.

Public record, yes. Doesn’t make it right however and reminds me of the attacks you launched on the families of the politicians and public officials families along the Grand Strand.

You apparently know ZERO boundries, because you apparently have nothing financially too lose in your miserable existence. In my opinion ANYBODY that befriends you does so to escape the possible wrath of your harrassment.

Other than that Boz, you are okay in my book for a nutjob and entertaining with your wit.

Guest October 22, 2014 at 12:21 am

You some crazy peoples, pogo.

“Alleged drunkeness” … that’s a good one. What was itif not drunkeness at the wheel that caused him to hit those cars and leave the scene of the crime, and somehow valdalize some police and fire alarm boxes? Another one of his “siezures” like the time he got his pic taken passed slam out, drunker’n Cooter Brown, between Willie’s and the Blue Marlin?

Davis — Thomas Gordon Davis, for anyone who wants to Google his name along with the word “mugshot” — started all that shit when he began to attack me in comments to the TSN stories — then quickly escalated to posting the phone numbers of my ex-wife and various family members. Said it was cool because it was “public information.” Later, after I called him out for that on The SNOB, he further escalated by posting financial information regarding my family that he also justified by saying it was “public information.” He also slandered and defamed my in my family with total exaggerations and outright lies, for a couple of years, threatened to ambush me on a walk in the neighborhood, and also threatened to kill me.

You know all this shit. You’re just being obtuse. Because that’s apparently your job.

Buz Martin October 22, 2014 at 12:24 am

You some crazy peoples, pogo / Sandi Morals / etc. / etc. / etc.

You know the history. You started calling Davis a drunk before I did.

Is trolling various blogs your job? Do you and Grand Tango know each other?

Still not convinced that both of you are not Democrats trying to make conservative Republicans looks stupid as fuck.

That is so true…most self identified libertarians are not philosophically consistent…because the implications lead to no government and very few are comfortable saying that.

Even in my personal discussions, I always feel the need to say “In an ideal world, there’d be no government” because 99% of people think it’s not possible to have such a world and if I don’t qualify my belief I’m written off as crazy.

Not actively supporting Gloria this time because she has idiots running her campaign. Sad to say.
Never supporter Colbert-Biusch, not my district and I didn’t care. Her brother is funny as shit, though.
As for pols I’ve supported, not counting POTUSi (since Clinton, first time only, was the last one I supported who won), and focusing on the ones from around here: I supported Tracy Edge, and he did win the first year I supported him. I did much work behind the scenes to get Johnnie Bellamy elected to chair Horry County GOP. I very actively supported Mike Lowder for city council in MB, and have been told that my aggressive promotion of a “vote single shot” strategy through social media had a lot to do with his surprise election, first time he won. In the last city council election I supported Randal Wallace. He won. I’ve supported Mark Lazarus, Harold Worley, Danny Frazier and Marion Foxworth on Horry County Council. All winners, all currently seated.

In other words, as usual: YOU LIE!!

LMAO!!! You supported Mark McBride and lost for mayor and lost EVERY city council race you supported in MB-except Lowder sneaking in because of the others splitting votes.You also worked against Wallace until you finally figured out he was a city council member for life in MB.

Tom Rice kicked your and Tinabu’s ass and rumor is that “meet and greet” you and doc joe organized in Murrels Inlet sealed her defeat then I read something about Rice’s wife threatening to involve law enforcement if you continued your typical insane blabbering?

Interesting read on past and present history. Randal’s my buddy. That’s all there is to it. John is a friend, now, for real.

I didn’t organize that “meet and greet” — I merely attended.

Yeah, about that drunken lunatic bitch Wrenzie Rice (I have not buddied up to EVERYBODY, you see. lol) …. after her IP address was identified as the one behind multiple troll posts to a story in Grand Strand Daily, I put the word out about that. It got out pretty far, people shared the story, commented, etc.

Then, that inebriated bi-polar harpie from hell specifically threatened me, Sic and a half dozen other people with … are you ready for this? … being arrested by 1) The Sergeant-At-Arms of the House of Representative, 2) The Secret Service, and 3) the Washington DC Police Department.

That’s right. Over someone calling her miserable ass out for trolling, she was delusional enough to think she could get all that heat to go to Columbia, Myrtle Beach, the Tampa Bay area of FL, and a few other locations to bust those responsible.

Thanks for the memory on that one, sport. Cracks me the hell up every time think about it.

SCBlueWoman October 21, 2014 at 4:40 pm

I remember that well. I was one of those threatened, simply because I asked a question and the truth embarrassed Rice. He’s a piece of work. I think Wrenzie is the one wearing the pants and telling him what to do.

nitrat October 21, 2014 at 9:32 am

The people, like Sic, who call the Real Republicans ‘RINOs’ are the actual ‘RINOs’.
Those Libertarian/theocrat/fascist/TEA Party are not Republicans and never have been.
Those Libertarian/theocrat/fascist/TEA Party are the ones who have made a semi-hostile takeover of a national party name and brand of the Party of Lincoln and warped it into the steaming pile of elephant crap it is today.
Sic hangs on to the ‘silly habit’ because if the Libertarian/theocrat/fascist/TEA Party ever get the balls to call themselves what they are, their numbers hit lower than the Barry Goldwater’s level in record time.
So, it’s best for Sic and his bunch to pretend they are the real Republicans when they have never, ever been Republicans at all.

How much has Ervin spent? It was reported last week that “traitor” tommy E. had spent over 4.1 MIllion $$$$$’s and at one time this summer had spent more than Haley and Sheheen combined.

Money wasn’t the problem for Dumb and Dumber. It was their message and the fact they both are DEmoncrats.

Reply
The Colonel October 21, 2014 at 9:16 am

Ervin has tripled his support all the way to – 11% in the latest poll. Based on the numbers, it looks like the vast majority of Ervin’s supporters came from none other than – Vince “Gilligan” Sheheen.

The Colonel October 21, 2014 at 9:30 am

The single most damning thing about Gilligan and the thing that makes him unqualified for the job is his campaign. He has obviously surrounded himself with idiots and that speaks to his management abilities. He can’t see that the shop he’s allegedly in charge of is foundering so he can’t try a different tack and that speaks to his lack of vision. He was vested by everybody on the stage in the last debate and that speaks to his lack of skill as the potential face of South Carolina.

CorruptionInColumbia October 21, 2014 at 10:09 am

My biggest issue with him is that he stands to make Leon the Chief of SLED if elected, or appoint him to a position of similar importance in LE at a state level.

Leon has a backup plan in motion by all appearances. He is getting his little chess men in place all around Richland County, so he has power and influence in adjoining counties in addition to RC. Lexington County voters, with one of those ubiquitous options of “no choice” and “no choice” elected one of Leon’s deputies to the office of Coroner, recently. Word has it another of his deputies is going to run for LC Sheriff either in two years or when (if) Jimmy is convicted of misdeeds, next year. Another Richland County deputy (no doubt with Leon’s blessings and encouragement) was just elected by the blind fools of Fairfield County. His stooge, Hollywood (The Ego) Matthews is Sheriff of Kershaw County for another four years. The only county bordering Richland that I am not aware of efforts by Leon to extend the tentacles of the Lott Family into as of late is Sumter County. I believe that at some point, it too will fall.

The Colonel October 21, 2014 at 10:44 am

We’ll have to agree to sort of disagree on Ol’Leon – he’s a little to political savy for my likes but by all accounts, his boys and girls do a pretty good job enforcing the law.

On “Hollywood Jim” Matthews, I think you’re wrong. he’s turned that group of fat good ol’boys playing cops and robbers into a fairly effective force. yeah he likes the klieg lights a little to much but he’s in an elective position – what do you expect? He’ll win (actually, has won) re-election without really trying because of it.

CorruptionInColumbia October 21, 2014 at 10:50 am

When they are as power-hungry as Leon, you better keep an eye on them. That’s all I have to say about that for now. His lust for power is phenomenal.

Herman Young was one of the very few long-term Sheriff’s that I don’t believe was a crook. I hope his health issues are cleared up and he enjoys a long retirement. Herman was a very humble man who did not seem to be on a quest for moar power at every turn.

The Colonel October 21, 2014 at 11:07 am

“Power hungry” is relative – I do find it a bit silly that we pay for the administration of two “separate police forces” n a built up county like Richland. Forest Acres Police, CPD, Irmo having all the little “po pos” isn’t really necessary (as long as we have legitimate civilian oversight)

CorruptionInColumbia October 21, 2014 at 11:21 am

I do understand your point about the duplication of services and related costs to that end. Did you notice what happened when Leon tried to get his finger in CPD’s pie the last time, though? His former “bestests and brightestests” (Scott and Santiago) were an embarrassment to CPD and the City of Columbia that they will not soon live down. To add to that, Leon hiring poor old Scott (with “PTSD” issues) back immediately upon his resignation from CPD detracted further from any credibility that Lott may have had. As I understand it, Scott’s current position at RCSD is as an “Ethics Officer”. WTF?????

That this should be the deciding factor in not only this race, but so many others, I believe is proof-positive that our election system needs a serious overhaul, starting with mandatory IQ tests for ALL voters before they get their voter registration card. That so many fools will vote for someone based on the number of bumper stickers, TV ads, yard signs, etc, seen or heard, is indicative of a serious longstanding problem in our system.

Look folks (the people, not Will specifically), I fully realize that Haley isn’t the best choice for gubernor but when you look at the five dwarfs in this campaign, she’s the most electable and the least dangerous of the lot. We’ve seen her best game and it wasn’t that good. You can bitch, moan and whine all you want but until we find some better candidates (on both sides) we’ll continue to get what we’ve got this time – choosing from the lesser of the evils.

French is using this as advertising for his grease company (that’s does for a living – recycle grease)

Ervin wants to make sure that “…child has access to a world class STEAM education…” that sounds good but before we worry about Art, lets get the STEM part done. Why’s he in the race – advertising for his law firm.

Morgan Reeves is all about promoting Morgan Reeves and whatever it is he really does for a living (besides trying to work marijuana legalization into every answer he gives in the debate)

Gilligan – well on the face of it, Gilligan looks like a good candidate but as his campaign has demonstrated, he lacks executive ability. he’s surrounded himself with idiots, lacks vision and gravitas. Try again in four years guys.

Vinnie ran his campaign worse than Nikki runs the state. Quite an accomplishment since she screwed the entire state up. Guess it’s time to buy that second house in Florida and start spending more time there. Cuban coffee and ceviche in Miami anyone?

You can hate Obama AND Haley…. I do. While not a fan of the Democratic agenda, Sheheen as Governor wouldn’t be so bad. The House and Senate are still Republican, so the negotiating would be more open. Checks and balances. They work SO much better when there’s a mix. It’s easier for a Republican Governor to improperly influence Republican lawmakers than it would be for a Democratic Governor.

Prove that its so much easier for a SC repub gov to influence SC repub lawmakers. Get details and accounts, if you can. This concept of for the party by the party and nothing but party is so old. That’s one of the biggest things that victimizes citizens. Parties being like a cult. That’s why I went independent. Sick of the old corrupt mentalities. And they keep breeding the young minds – brainwashing – teaching – corrupting. Nothing will change unless it is forced to change. And the more people get sick and tired of corruption. The more they talk about it. The more who learn and see the problem. Reversing the old fashion good old boy trend is an uphill battle. But at least over 63% of the American people agree, that government and the USA has gone to hell in a handbasket. Its no different in South Carolina either. Its a just about a shipwreck. But people like Haley try to smooth it all over with words. If you don’t just listen to her, and if you do your homework, one can easily learn and figure out, that she is full of herself.

The last unemployment report for SC before the election comes out today. The preliminary news release says SC gained 13,000 jobs in September and 43,000 jobs in the last 12 months. Good news for South Carolina and Gov. Haley.

I am not exactly ‘pro union. However, its looking like unions might be the only chance South Carolina may have to force it’s very low hourly wages up to income levels that would drag many out of poverty (or from the border of being in the said).

Well, look at all the money she’s raising, and it ain’t comin’ from the poor. She has a lot of rich supporters who will vote for her. Unfortunately, a lot of poor don’t vote; but if they did, they’d vote for Sheheen.

It was pins and needles there for awhile. Seems they opted on keeping Haley over Ard or McConnell as Governor? Indicting the first female Governor is not Cricket? Or she simply threatened to rat them all out? My rub is how she has administrated since her election. I can not with a clear conscience vote for her where a second term could translate into her “skills” going to D.C. as a VP or Cabinet Secretary in 2016. I have concluded that if Romney is reawakening as a 2016 contender, it can only mean that the Establishment wants Benghazi Hillary as President. Trumpeting Romney to run as a shill to crush any non-establishment conservative from getting the GOP nomination is a strategy the Establishment could only devise. Hillary would slam a Romney nomination. So, back in SC, I could not endure four more years of Haley. Therefore, while I am angry at all the Republicans in the General Assembly, my SC-2 US Rep Wilson, and Sen Graham, I will protest by voting against all tax hikes and for all Democrats. Sen Scott is the lone exception. And if Sen Scott does not sharpen those pencils, he can expect a brutal 2016 primary from the likes of the SC Establishment.

Did Sheheen really ever start campaigning?? Could’ve fooled me. There’s probably a good portion of SC who don’t even know he’s running for Governor. Probably the most anemic campaign for governor by a major party candidate I’ve ever seen. Even worse than his campaign last time which was almost non-existent. Hell, Bakari will probably pull more votes than Sheheen. Hey Vincent, first mistake was hiring out-of-state campaign managers who don’t know what the hell they’re doing.
