Republican race for South Carolina governor

The GOP race to replace scandal-tainted Mark Sanford has turned into a sideshow, with state Rep. Nikki Haley surging in polls even as several men have alleged having affairs with her. She has denied any infidelity.

Haley is widely expected to advance to a June 22 runoff -- a near certainty with no candidate expected to win 50 percent.

Rep. J. Gresham Barrett, Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer and Attorney General Henry McMaster are also seeking the GOP nod.
