Nothing sticks to front-runner Haley

Oct 28, 2010 9:12:00 PM - thestate.com

The television ads feature newspaper headlines about Republican gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley’s taxes, her jobs or her e-mails. Editorials have questioned whether she had the right leadership approach with fellow lawmakers.

Fellow Republicans have run a Swift Boat-style campaign doubting her fitness for office.

But according to polls, none of it matters much to voters because Haley, a Lexington state representative, is favored to defeat Democratic state Sen. Vincent Sheheen on Tuesday.

Is Haley coated in nonstick Teflon, remaining clean despite the political mud-throwing? Or have her message, issues and the national political climate made her bulletproof?
