The Columbia State takes a look at some of the politicking going on at the RNC convention in St. Paul -- in this case, the early jostling for the GOP nomination to succeed Mark Sanford as governor of South Carolina.
A handful of contenders have begun raising money and building a network to succeed Gov. Mark Sanford. They include: U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett, R-Westminster, Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer and Attorney General Henry McMaster.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
