Haley, Scott win SC runoff for GOP nominations
By LIZ SIDOTI and JIM DAVENPORT (AP) – 11 hours ago
COLUMBIA, S.C. — In a break from the state’s racist legacy, South Carolina Republicans overwhelmingly chose Nikki Haley, an Indian-American woman, to run for governor and easily nominated Tim Scott, in line to become the former Confederate stronghold‘s first black GOP congressman in more than a century.
In line with their yankee arrogance and infantile liberal bias, Liz Sidoti and Jim Davenport managed to work both “racist legacy” and “former Confederate stronghold” into the first sentence of this morning’s AP report on the South Carolina elections.
This is not going to help the AP’s image.
Well, perhaps the rest of the country will lap it up, but trust me, in the South, we are tired of being denounced as racists just because we won’t give our political support to the Democrat Party.
