Hail Nikki Haley, the youngest Mama Grizzly in the den!
Sarah Palin proves once again, she is a power to be reckoned with in 2012!
Obama Movement is done, Conservatism is the new American trend!
The political and ideological pendulum is well on its way to swing way out to the Right!
Okay, that’s enough different ways of saying the same thing – our favorite gal has won, Hail Nikki Haley.
In what Chris Cilllizza called the ‘marquee event’ of the election night, Haley crushed her primary run-off opponent, and became a national news sensation – with some early, if far fetched, talk of her vice-presidential potential.
Given Haley’s background and the primacy of South Carolina in the 2012 Republican presidential primary process, she will almost certainly become a national figure in short order.
With 100% precincts reporting, Nikki Haley polled almost twice as many votes as Gresham Barrett: 65 to 35 percent (233,322 to 125,428 votes).
The PUMA movement rejoices in Nikki Haley victory, albeit for a wide range of reasons, as evidenced by the comments to dakinikat’s post at The Confluence.
Congratulations to Nikki Haley. She is sure to cruise to an easy victory in the November general election since South Carolina is a solid red state,
