Maybe She's Having An Affair With The Ex-Governor Now!

Nikki Gate?

P.S.

Tim Scott sponsored "Election Town Halls" in his SC district for every single 2012 GOP candidate EXCEPT Ron Paul. So while everyone thinks he's awesome, I'm not impressed.

Maybe Nikki Haley is just having another news conference about how 3.6 million SC citizens and 700,000 businesses personal info was high-jacked from the SC Department of Revenue's computers.

3.6 million social security numbers exposed in unprecedented South Carolina cyber attack http://www.theverge.com/2012/10/26/3560140/south-carolina-cy...

South Carolina state senator doesn't want DeMint's seat
By Cameron Joseph - 12/06/12 03:59 PM ET
South Carolina state Sen. Tom Davis (R) doesn't want to replace Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.).
"I've gone ahead and told the governor's office I'm not interested. I've put so much work into the 2013 legislative session, I couldn't in good conscience walk away from that," he told The Hill on Thursday. "To make Gov. Haley's job an iota easier, I just called to let them know."
Haley will name a replacement for the next two years of DeMint's term when he resigns in January, and a special election will be held in 2014 for the remainder of the term. Speculation for a replacement has centered around Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.), with sources telling The Hill that Scott is DeMint's preferred replacement, though Haley could pick someone else and could also name a caretaker who promises not to run for a full term.
Davis, a former chief of staff and campaign manager for South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R), is viewed as an up-and-coming politician in the Tea Party wing of the party. While many have speculated that he's interested in running against Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in 2014, he told The Hill on Wednesday that he "probably won't."
He also said DeMint's decision might make it less likely that Graham could face a challenge, though he still hopes someone will run against him from the right.
"Certainly if there are two races the odds that potential rivals for one race may divert to the other race are high," he said.

Betrayal by Davis! He told us he'd run : (

I can't believe this. In the article not only is he saying he's not interested in DeMint's seat but he's also NOT interested in running against Lindsey Graham! I can't believe this.

This is a golden opportunity for him to get the easy way in by clinching DeMint's seat w/o having to fight the uphill battle to defeat an incumbent. What is he waiting for? Ugh... what a horrible day : /

Dude, calm down. I live in SC

Dude, calm down. I live in SC and Tom Davis is working on some important SC legislation. He's trying very hard to bring the state of SC closer to Liberty and he said leaving now would throw away everything he's done so far for the cause.

He's going to go after Lindsey Graham in 2014.

Hmmm, it sounded like he

Hmmm, it sounded like he "probably won't" go after Lindsey Graham.

I had my highest hopes on him. I'm hoping we get at least one liberty-minded senator into office every 2 years. 2010 we got 2, Lee and Rand. 2012 was a wash. I was really hoping for Davis in 2014.

This is straight from Tom

This is straight from Tom Davis...

"I appreciate the flattering comments about me recently posted on this page, but we need someone in DC right now to replace Jim DeMint who has been immersed in the fiscal-cliff debate and could hit the ground running, and Rep. Mick Mulvaney
is way more up-to-speed on that issue than I am. Going to DC would also require me to drop all of the bills I have been working on for the 2013 state legislative session, and I can't in good conscience do that. Bottom line, I can make more of a difference right now in Columbia, working to make South Carolina the freest state in the nation, and Mick is better suited to fight the battle in DC. Please give him your support."

You can count on Davis to oppose Lindsey Graham in the 2014 primaries.

I'm glad to hear that.

I'm glad to hear that. Thanks for posting.

BTW, is Mulvaney one of the 4-5 super conservative state legislatures that came out and endorsed Ron Paul? Obviously, Davis was the first of them to come out. The other 4 I don't know their names.

Bizarro world!

Another one of those "he must have something up his sleeve" type thingies huh?
