GOP Leader Calls for 'Swift Resolution' of Rebel Flag Debate

Pressure on South Carolina Republicans to remove the Confederate flag from the Statehouse grounds grew on Monday, days after a young white man who embraced the banner as a symbol of white power was charged with murdering nine people inside their historic black church. State leaders held a flurry of meetings to figure out what to do. Gov. Nikki Haley, who has favored leaving the flag where it is, was meeting with lawmakers ahead of a news conference announced for Monday afternoon.
