In a pair of rallies Monday, both the widow and son of former governor Carroll Campbell endorsed Republican Nikki Haley as their choice for the office in 2011.
Iris and Mike Campbell announced their support for Haley at seperate events in Greenville and Columbia. Iris said the family is behind Haley “one hundred percent.”
Being governor is not an easy job. It’s a 24-7. But, I think Nikki is the lady for the job. She’s proven how strong she is.
Governor Campbell was a Republican who held the office from 1987 to 1995 with a Democratic-controlled legislature. He is, among other things, credited with succesfully lobbying BMW to build a manufacturing plant the Upstate.
He died in 2005 of a heart attack.
