Sandusky isn't likely to convince anyone that he's innocent.

There are many things we like about Gov. Nikki Haley, chief among them being her determined focus on economic development. Haley has been a tireless campaigner for South Carolina when it comes to attracting business to the Palmetto State, and it's paid off in lots of jobs and significant tax revenue. We also like the fact she's a female of Indian descent who helps the diversity picture in South Carolina.

In this day of polarized politics, you rarely hear a member of one party criticize a member of the same party, and you seldom hear a compliment thrown towards a candidate from someone who resides in the opposite camp. But earlier this week, as Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas kicked off his 2016 presidential campaign, Rep. Peter King of New York, a Republican just like Cruz, was free in dismissing Cruz as "a guy with a big mouth and no results." Going on to liken Cruz to a carnival barker, King verbally eviscerated the Texas senator. Of course, there's ...
