A new face of the Republican party? With former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz pulling off a dramatic win in a runoff for a Senate seat on Tuesday, Cruz becomes just the latest example of the GOP’s increasing diversity. WIth a number of increasingly successful Republicans who aren’t white — including Cruz, Sen. Marco Rubio, Gov. Nikki Haley and Gov. Bobby Jindal, among others — the Republican Party may be slowly starting to break from the past. “In the 2016 or 2020 Republican presidential primary, it’s easy to see a contest that includes Jindal and Rubio in its top tier,” notes Chris Cillizza of the Washington Post.

Well, this is out of left field: According to the Palmetto Public Record, the Governor of South Carolina will soon be indicted by the Department of Justice for tax fraud. While Haley generally keeps a low profile, she’s without question one of the GOP’s rising stars, and has been mentioned both by Republican strategists and Mitt Romney himself as a possible running mate. Details of the tax fraud allegations are still being put together, but they supposedly involve a Sikh temple run by Haley’s father, unpaid contractors hired to build said temple, and the possibility that the unpaid money made its way into Haley’s campaign coffers. But all that’s unconfirmed at this point. Stay tuned on this one. source
