Haley on Voter ID: 'We won't let this go'
Implementing South Carolina's new Voter ID law before November elections looks like a long shot.
A new South Carolina Voter ID law looks increasingly like a long shot to affect the November general election.
The law, praised by S.C. Republicans as one of the top new pieces of legislation in the 2012 State House, was shot down by the justice department again on Monday.
And on Tuesday, a lawsuit filed by South Carolina against the U.S. government received a new timetable.
Gov. Nikki Haley, a strong supporter of the new law, took to Facebook Tuesday and vowed to keep fighting: "We won't let this go."
Following the DOJ objection to the law last December, S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson vowed to file suit over it. That lawsuit was filed on Feb. 7.
The state Election Commission tells AP it would need about two months to implement the law.
