Editorial

Haley: The right choice for South Carolina Governor


web posted May 17, 2010
EDITORIAL – With the crowded field of candidates seeking to be the next governor, only one stands out as a leader that can take on the establishment of politics as usual in Columbia, Rep. Nikki Haley. Haley has shown she can defy the good old boy system and win victories for citizens, not special interests groups or the party insiders. She is the only true citizen candidate for governor.

Rep. Haley is not afraid to point to and talk about the elephant in the room, something that cost her dearly after being stripped of prominent committee appointments for forcing the legislature to place their votes on the record so voters can see how their representatives in Columbia are voting. What a novel idea, representatives actually being accountable for their votes and spending of taxpayer’s dollars.

Rep. Haley knows what it is like to run a small business in South Carolina and the burdens placed on them by the state. She knows that the private sector can do the job smarter and cheaper than government and the best way to create jobs is to get government out of the way of small businesses.

She is a true conservative and stands in the way of insidious over-regulation and over-taxation. She knows that if small businesses have more freedom and money in their hands they will invest in their companies and create more jobs rather than sending it to Columbia to be spent on pet projects by the powerful party leaders.

Haley has the much needed common sense approach to solving the problems that have been ignored, if not encouraged, by the standard bearers of the status quo in our state government for far too long.

Nikki Haley is who we need leading our state as Governor.
