COLUMBIA — Gov. Nikki Haley on Monday chose Tim Scott to succeed the resigning Jim DeMint next month. Three days later, the senator-designate is making a fundraising pitch for Haley.
This morning, Scott sent the following email, titled “Only the Beginning,” to Haley supporters:
I was honored earlier this week when Governor Nikki Haley gave me the opportunity to replace outgoing Senator Jim DeMint.
Watching the Governor from afar has been incredible. I can’t imagine the daily pressures of governing this state. But I can see with clarity the conviction, integrity, and character that she governs with.
The Democrats are already in attack mode against her, and as I send this, they are already preparing their smear campaign against the Governor in the next election. We need Nikki Haley in office to continue fighting for the conservative principles we hold so dear. I understand it is the holiday season, but Governor Haley needs just another $27,450 to end this month strong.
This is only the beginning, but the future is incredibly bright and looks great in our state!
South Carolina is better because we have Nikki Haley as our governor and I look forward to working with her for a long time to come.
P.S. – The unions are already preparing their attacks. Please help Nikki finish this month strong by making a donation here!
(End of email)
The pitch comes after Haley on Tuesday sent an email soliciting donations for Scott’s campaign.
As of the last disclosure period, Haley had more than $1 million in her campaign war chest. Look for that number to grow when the latest round of fundraising numbers are released next month.
