The run for chairmanship of the South Carolina Republican Party has become, for one of the candidates, a personal glorification.
I related some of the issues that surround contender Patrick Haddon. Yet, there may be more.
A number of sources have told me that Haddon has claimed to them to have the tacit backing of several key GOP figures. Among the luminaries from whom Haddon has supposedly received endorsement are Governor Nikki Haley and former SCGOP Chair Katon Dawson.
The Governor’s office confirms that she has made no such endorsement and in an email exchange with Chairman Dawson, he wrote;
I have not made any endorsements for chairman not public or private and look forward to a spirted race and each canidates plans to move our party forward and host a presidential primary.
The Chairman gave me permission to quote him.
