Haley campaigns on SC coast with big GOP names

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina Republican gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley says she's campaigning for Tuesday's runoff as though she is in fourth place.

Haley appeared in Charleston on Friday with several big Republican names, including Mitt Romney and his wife Ann, former South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford and state Attorney General Henry McMaster.

Haley got 49% of the vote in last week's primary. She was asked if she's worried her supporters will think the election is sewed up and sit home Tuesday. Haley says she's running hard and hopes to get every voter to the polls.

She faces U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett in next week's GOP gubernatorial runoff. He got just 22% of the vote in the June 8 primary.

Haley has a fundraiser later Friday at Hilton Head Island.
