    COLUMBIA, S.C. -- A group set up to push South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford's agenda has begun airing ads praising state Rep. Nikki Haley as she campaigns for governor. The ads began airing Monday. They're a shot in the arm for Haley's cash-strapped campaign. The $530,000 she had in cash at the end of the March was a third or less than any of her three GOP primary opponents. ReformSC says it is airing the ads statewide but would not provide details on how much it is spending to put Haley's name and face in front of June 8 primary...

    As South Carolina nears the Republican statewide primary elections, the campaigns of those angling for the governor’s office have become increasingly outspoken in their attempts to tear down their rivals and claw their way into the hearts of a hardcore conservative electorate that will be voting June 8. Between the two top-fundraising candidates, U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett and state Attorney General Henry McMaster, the latest back-and-forth has been centered around tax issues. In Barrett’s case, the issue is his 2008 vote in favor of the TARP bailout of Wall Street banks. In McMaster’s, it’s closer to home — a years-old...
