South Carolina Democratic chairman Dick Harpootlian compared his state's Republican female governor, Nikki Haley, to Hitler's mistress, Eva Braun this morning at a breakfast in Charlotte, North Carolina.

South Carolina's the State reports:

On Gov. Nikki Haley participating in daily news briefings in a basement studio at the NASCAR Hall of Fame: “She was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun.”

Braun, along with her lover Adolf Hitler, committed suicide in a bunker as World War II was coming to an end.

The day before, a Democratic delegate from California compared Ryan to Nazi Joseph Goebbels.
