Haley story puts race in limbo

May 27, 2010 3:12:00 PM - thestate.com

Keep your head down and follow the campaign plan.

That’s what the four Republicans running for governor said they would do as a blogger’s still-unproven allegations of an “inappropriate physical relationship” with a married candidate continue to dominate news coverage.

The blogger, former Gov. Mark Sanford spokesman Will Folks, published text messages on his site Wednesday that he said prove he discussed the story with Lexington Rep. Nikki Haley’s campaign prior to its publication. Folks claimed to have had a physical relationship in 2007 with Haley, who was married at the time.

The texts, which began two weeks ago, also include conversations about which reporters were chasing the story and efforts by the Haley campaign to keep it out of the press. Folks said again Wednesday he eventually plans to publish evidence of an affair, but the story has kept the governor’s race in limbo since Monday.
