P&C | Conspiracy theories running wild

“Remarkably, Nikki Haley survived and even prospered in the midst of two allegations of marital infidelity. Despite all the smoke, voters either decided there was no fire, or they preferred not to acknowledge the fire because it was started by two male cads. … Haley starts out as the heavy favorite in the June 22 runoff, but (U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett) has an outside chance. … And who knows what revelations might pop up? … Meanwhile, state Sen. Vince Sheheenwon a large majority in the Democratic primary. He’s an articulate, attractive nominee but faces difficult odds and will need some big breaks to become competitive in the conservative Palmetto State.”
