O'Malley plans to attack Haley, who is up for re-election next year, as "tea party Republican" who cares more about voter ID laws than expanding health care access and education for South Carolinians, according to early excerpts of his speech provided to CNN.

Haley plans no 'placeholder' for DeMint's Senate seat

Washington (CNN) – After spending the weekend considering replacements for retiring Sen. Jim DeMint, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley announced Monday that she will not appoint a "placeholder" senator who will hold the office until a special election is held in 2014.

"As I continue to consider the impending U.S. Senate vacancy, many have discussed the possibility of a 'placeholder' appointee who would pledge to serve for only two years and not seek election to the seat in 2014," Haley said in a statement released by her office. "While there are some good arguments in favor of that approach, I believe the better case is against it."
