On Thursday, a new group focused on attacking Haley — Conservatives for Truth in Politics — held a news conference announcing that it will press Haley on allegations that she had two extramarital affairs and failed to pay her taxes on time.

The group is headed by Cyndi Mosteller, a former first vice chairwoman of the state GOP, who at the news conference declared, “Nikki wants votes. We want answers.”

Mosteller wants Haley, who currently holds a double-digit lead in the polls, to allow her computer to be searched for proof of an affair and provide the group with her financial and employment records for examination.
