Gov. Haley Increases Fundraising Pace

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has stepped up her fundraising, with donations coming from individuals and companies in 20 states, The State newspaper reported Wednesday.

The first-term Republican governor raked in more than $223,000 during the third quarter, a majority of it from out-of-state donors, the paper said. That’s more than four times the amount she collected the preceding quarter.

The paper said Haley received a $3,500 donation from Bridgestone Americas a week after the company announced a $1.2 billion investment in South Carolina’s Aiken County. She also got $7,000 from The Ethos Group, an auto insurer in Texas, where Haley’s friend Eleanor Kitzman is  insurance commissioner.

The South Carolina governor also got 13 donations totaling more than $29,000 from New Jersey, where she held a fundraiser last month.

“There are people around the state and the country who appreciate what Gov. Haley is doing to make South Carolina a more business-friendly environment and want to support her — and we very much appreciate that support,” said Haley fundraiser Marisa Crawford, Haley’s fundraiser.
