Palin Endorsement Boosts Haley

A new Rasmussen survey in South Carolina shows Nikki Haley (R) -- recently endorsed by Sarah Palin -- now leads the Republican primary race for governor.

Haley leads with 30%, followed by Henry McMaster (R) at 19%, Gresham Barrett (R) at 17% and Andre Bauer at 12%.

Just two months ago, a similar survey put Haley in fourth place.

In addition to the Palin nod, Dave Weigel reports Gov. Mark Sanford's PAC just spent $400k on television ads for Haley -- almost doubling her campaign spending.
