Haley's Expected Veto Jeopardizes S.C. Primary

Connelly argued that the state's funding of the primary is crucial to the integrity of the election. "Like too many South Carolina households, our state government faces a budget crunch in the coming year," said Connelly. "Yet the South Carolina Republican Party's insistence on state involvement in the primary is less about money and more about following the law. We must conduct elections with utmost care. Ballot access, impartiality and protecting against fraud are just a few concerns, and next year's primary will meet the highest of standards. I believe that secure elections and complying with federal law are absolutely a core function of state government." Haley has until Wednesday to sign off on or veto pieces of the budget.
