Most of you know that Jane Vaughters, Reggie Ebner, Dick Dewar, Steve Homoki and I have given our enthusiastic support to Nikki Haley. Many of you also have had an opportunity to hear and see Nikki and there is broad agreement that getting to know her is to love her.

Her opponents have the career politician’s usual advantages of name recognition and large war chests accumulated in previous campaigns. As I have said before “incumbents always win.” We need a fresh new face to lead us into the future and Nikki will do a great job.
