"Statehouse Report endorses constitutional officers
OCT. 22, 2010 -- In announcing our general election endorsements today, we are mindful of an aphorism by philosopher George Santayana: “Those who cannot remember the past are doomed to repeat it.”
As we considered the merits of candidates in the seven contested statewide constitutional offices up for grabs, we thought about each candidate’s background and tried to use to predict whether the candidate would make a positive impact on South Carolina and improve the state. Many would. A few, such as GOP gubernatorial hopeful Nikki Haley, seem to have pasts that raise enough questions that steer us away from them."
