SC Gov. Haley endorses Romney

  • Follow Latest News

SIOUX CITY, Iowa — South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is endorsing Mitt Romney for president.

Haley said Friday on Fox News she is throwing all of her support behind Romney in the Republican primaries. She says jobs, the economy and spending are most important and the former Massachusetts governor is the best candidate to address those issues.

Haley also says President Barack Obama seems most afraid to face Romney.

Haley is a rising star in the GOP, and her endorsement means a lot in South Carolina, the first Southern state to hold a primary election.

Romney will appear with Haley Friday afternoon in South Carolina. Haley says they will campaign together Saturday.

I suppose it's inevitable. I don't think any of the other candidates besides Huntsman will withstand sustained election year scrutiny. Huntsman probably would have ended up looking better, but the base never took a shine to him.

Well, this just goes to show

Well, this just goes to show that great minds think alike. I supported Haley in her election, and I've been a Romney supporter since 2008.

Sorry, Burn, but Huntsman was just too little, too late.

I've been a Nikki Haley

I've been a Nikki Haley supporter, too. And the next time she goes to a conference out of town, I'd like to attend it. I'll be hanging out around the bar.
