GOP committeemen: Christie's bridge drama won't stay with him

Washington (CNN) - Chris Christie's handling of access lane closures to the George Washington Bridge - and the fact that his staff closed the lanes for apparent political retribution - will not matter to voters if the Governor decides to run for president, three Republican committeemen from early primary and caucus states said Thursday.

"I don't think this will make any difference whatsoever if Gov. Christie runs," Stephen Duprey, Republican National Committeeman from New Hampshire, told CNN. "People in New Hampshire could care less about whether some bureaucrat working on his staff did something stupid like this."

Haley announces re-election bid in South Carolina

Greenville, South Carolina (CNN) - Surrounded by a massive American flag, a modest late-summer crowd and three governors with possible designs on the White House, South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley announced Monday that she will seek a second term.

At a brief, sun-drenched outdoor rally in downtown Greenville, Haley, one of the most vulnerable members of the 2010 class of Republican governors, asked for another four years in office and rattled off her accomplishments: more than 37,000 new jobs across the state, welfare reform, tax cuts and rigid opposition to President Barack Obama's health care reform law.

First on CNN: Iowa's Steve King heading to South Carolina

Washington (CNN) – Iowa Rep. Steve King, whose hard line immigration rhetoric has angered some of his fellow Republicans and delighted Democrats eager to keep Hispanic voters in their fold, is quietly planning meetings with political activists in the early presidential primary state of South Carolina, CNN has learned.

King will travel to the state in late August to attend the Charleston Meeting, a closed-door gathering of right-leaning politicians and business leaders organized by author and activist Mallory Factor, two Republican sources said.
