      Loftis to seek re-election as treasurer

      S.C. Treasurer Curtis Loftis says he'll seek re-election to his current job in 2014.

      COLUMBIA (WACH)- S.C. Treasurer Curtis Loftis says he'll seek re-election to his current job in 2014.

      Loftis, a Republican, said in a statement released today, "Having my name mentioned for higher office is flattering, often amusing and usually harmless.

      But recently those who oppose our efforts to bring transparency and accountability to how your money is managed have been using that harmless parlor game to thwart our efforts. Inside the corridors of power the special interest whispers that ??it is all about Curt running for governor.??

      Loftis, who came into office in 2011, was widely considered to be a challenger to incumbent Governor Nikki Haley in 2014.
