The primary election is one week later, on June 8.

Meanwhile, blogger Will Folks has reportedly hired a former Clinton-era U.S. attorney, Pete Strom, to represent him. Strom, now in private practice in Columbia, did not immediately return a call.Folks also gave an interview to Channel 7 News. He claims the truth will come out and vindicate him, and also that the Haley camp asked him to deny to reporters that he had a relationship with Haley. Watch:
