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."

S.C. predictions: If Romney wins, he's the nominee

(CNN) – Two influential conservative politicians in South Carolina predicted Sunday that Mitt Romney will effectively wrap up the Republican presidential nomination if he wins the upcoming Palmetto State primary.

Sen. Lindsey Graham and Rep. Tim Scott, both Republicans, told NBC's "Meet the Press" that a Romney victory in South Carolina on January 21 would end the suspense after the former Massachusetts governor won the first two contests in Iowa and New Hampshire.

Tim Scott, the ultimate undecided voter

Charleston, South Carolina (CNN) - Just one hour before heading into the Sottile Theater at the College of Charleston to host a presidential forum for South Carolina voters, Republican Congressman Tim Scott told reporters that he still hasn’t decided who he’s going to vote for –let alone who he might endorse.

“My goal is really not to figure out Romney versus the anti-Romney, which is what’s shaping up,” Scott said, before laying four specific qualities – character, competency, values and faith – that will ultimately shape his decision. “Those four qualities, I’m going to sit down and create a little matrix for myself and come to a decision in the next few days.”

Rep. Scott: Gingrich would take South Carolina

(CNN) - Political heavyweight and Republican Rep. Tim Scott of South Carolina said Monday that if the election were held today, GOP presidential front-runner Newt Gingrich would win the Palmetto State.

"We'd love to see Mitt Romney spend more time in South Carolina, but I believe today if we were to hold the election, those are the two guys that would be at the top of the ticket and Newt would win," Scott said in an interview with CNN's "John King, USA."
