  • South Carolina Post Debate Poll: Trump 35%, Rubio 18%, Ted Cruz 18%

    02/15/2016 7:42:23 PM PST · by Helicondelta · 17 replies ^ | February 15 | Sundance
    The latest post-debate poll from South Carolina, conducted by PPPolling, shows Ted Cruz slipping backward to catch Marco Rubio; and a candidate field, behind Trump, mired in the mud. Put another way - The same inept politicians who ran for three election cycles promising change, yet did nothing except make things worse, are now standing next to even more inept presidential candidates and touting them as the solution for their own ineptitude. The political gaslighting is no longer effective against an engaged electorate. Let's think about this. To combat their stuck in the mud problem - Jeb Bush calls Lindsey...

    "We are not going to allow this symbol to divide us any longer," South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) said Monday afternoon, in a televised address to the nation, of the soon-to-be-retired Confederate flag that has flown on the state capitol grounds for decades. And so long as GOP state legislators follow their governor and their party, after 150 years, South Carolina will no longer endorse the Confederate battle flag, but will consign it to a museum to recognize, as Haley emphasized in her address, its place in the state's history.

    The 2012 PGA golf championship showcased the green links, yellow sands and blue skies at the beachside Kiawah country club in South Carolina. But it also exposed the political maneuvering that annually brings about 170 low-wage black workers from Jamaica into South Carolina for temporary jobs that could otherwise have gone to local South Carolina workers. Those low-wage workers helped the club’s financial returns, and indirectly, also helped South Carolina’s Sen. Lindsey Graham, who has long pushed for an immigration rewrite that would import more low-wage foreign workers. In February, Graham told a Rotary Club lunch in Easley, S.C., that...

    South Carolina’s embattled Sen. Lindsey Graham is getting some home-state aid from New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg. He’s also getting support from one of President George W. Bush’s cabinet secretaries, Carlos Gutierrez, whose business-backed group, Republicans for Immigration Reform, launched a $60,000 TV ad campaign to help Graham get through the GOP’s 2014 primary. The support is being sent because Graham is drawing criticism for his effort to pass a controversial immigration bill that would provide a path for 11 million illegal immigrants to become citizens, and eventually help them bring their relatives into the country.

    South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is facing her first big lawsuit after saying the state would try to keep unions out of the Boeing Inc. plant in North Charleston. The lawsuit filed Thursday in U.S. District Court in Charleston by the International Association of Machinists and AFL-CIO asked for a court order telling Haley and her director of the Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation to butt out and remain neutral in matters concerning union activities.
