Source: Haley Considering BBQ Chain Owner As ‘Placeholder’ Replacement For DeMint

Source: TPM



EVAN MCMORRIS-SANTORO 4:06 PM EST, THURSDAY DECEMBER 6, 2012

A Republican source in South Carolina tells TPM Gov. Nikki Haley (R) is considering filling Sen. Jim DeMint's (R-SC) Senate seat with Chad Walldorf, owner of the Sticky Fingers regional chain of barbecue restaurants. Walldorf is the chair of the South Carolina Board of Economic Advisors and a former deputy chief of staff to Gov. Mark Sanford (R). The source says Walldorf is being considered as a "placeholder" choice.

Walldorf's name is "buzzing" in the state capital of Columbia, the source said.

DeMint reportedly favors Rep. Tim Scott (R) as his replacement.

Through Sticky Fingers, Walldorf once paid $50,000 for a portrait of Stephen Colbert to display in its Charleston location as part of a charity drive by the Comedy Central host.

1. It will be a disaster no matter who it is

SC has long been incapable of sending rational people to Washington.

However, the disaster will be a freshman Senator, unable to do DeMint's type of damage.

2. All that's really required to be a Republican Senator or member of Congress is Sticky Fingers

so that fits.

10. A placeholder for herself perhaps?

If she wants to run in 2014, she wouldn't want a strong candidate already in the seat.

11. That was my first thought, Blasphemer.

She doesn't want Tim Scott sitting there as the incumbant, when she runs for it.

12. I wonder can she appoint herself in SC or maybe resign and have

her replacement appoint her.

Although many are saying former Gov don't like the Senate. Hint, hint don't you dare do it.
