COLUMBIA, SC — The Republican National Committee posted 32 names of 2106 GOP White House potentials after its winter meeting and a couple of Palmetto State politicos are in the mix.
Gov. Nikki Haley and U.S. Sen. Tim Scott are listed in a straw poll along with frontrunners like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and U.S. Sens. Rand Paul and Ted Cruz.
The RNC poll also includes former VP nominee Sarah Palin, former U.S. United Nations ambassador John Bolton and former congressman Allen West -- so make of it what you will.
Both Haley and Scott have elections this year for their current seats -- so don't expect any 2016 talk from them.
But the chatter will grow starting on Nov. 5.
