Haley a Nazi? Democrat not backing down from analogy

The Chairman of the South Carolina Democratic Party is refusing to apologize after he compared his state’s Republican Gov. Nikki Haley to Adolf Hitler’s mistress Eva Braun.

Dick Harpootlian, a tart-tongued Columbia attorney known for his off-color and sometimes inflammatory rhetoric, made the analogy after Haley showed up at the Democratic National Convention earlier this week to offer a GOP response to the proceedings in Charlotte.

With convention speakers named, Romney's VP list appears to narrow

(CNN) – Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley - three women rumored to be under consideration as Mitt Romney's running mate - will have high profile speaking roles at the Republican National Convention, organizers will announce Monday.

The naming of the three women most likely means that Romney's campaign is no longer vetting their backgrounds, if they ever did.

No apologies from woman who bashed piñata of governor

(CNN) - She took a baseball bat to a piñata bearing the likeness of South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, but when asked about the swings on Thursday, Donna Dewitt said she had no "regrets," and that "it could have been any face on that piñata."

"I certainly didn't have any hostilities so it wasn't intended to be hostile," she said Wednesday on CNN's "John King, USA." "My husband and I have been married 44 years. There are times you could have probably put his face on it, and he feels the same way about me. It was a piñata."

Haley talks Romney and tea party support

Washington (CNN) – South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has already taken her name out of the running for vice presidential consideration this election but that isn't stopping her from touting the candidate she's endorsed for president, Mitt Romney.

"I knew him and Ann. I knew their family. I knew where they were. I knew how he wasn't just a candidate that wanted to win. This is somebody who had thought for the last four years about how he would handle the situation had he been president," Haley said.
