COLUMBIA, S.C. -

Gov. Nikki Haley's campaign has reimbursed taxpayers $7,600 for out-of-state fundraisers over the last fiscal year, as per an agreement with agencies that provide her security detail.

Campaign spokesman Rob Godfrey said Tuesday checks were mailed to three separate agencies last month. They covered agents' costs for nine private fundraisers during trips to California, Florida, New York, Texas, Ohio and Michigan.

State law bars taxpayer funds from being used for campaign events. Haley's campaign agreed in 2011 to reimburse on a yearly basis.

Authorities confirmed Monday that Haley was at a fundraiser in Greensboro, N.C., in June when an agent crashed into a concrete pole in the roadway. Haley and two other passengers were uninjured.

Godfrey says there's no reimbursement for that trip because it wasn't a fundraiser for her.
