Before making her selection, Haley said she would not consider a “placeholder” senator who would pledge to only hold the office until the special election.

“While there are some good arguments in favor of that approach, I believe the better case is against it,” she said in a statement last week.

The day after DeMint’s announcement, Haley vowed to pick his immediate successor quickly and choose someone “who has the same philosophy of government that Jim DeMint and I share.”
