August 13, 2011: South Carolina’s Governor Nikki Haley gestures as she address the RedState Gathering of conservative activists in Charleston, South Carolina.
South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley endorsed Mitt Romney for president Friday, saying he has the executive experience in the private and public sectors that proves he can deal “with a broken Washington.”
The first-term governor offered “all of my support” to the former Massachusetts governor during an interview on Fox News. She plans to hold a campaign event with Romney Friday afternoon in South Carolina.
“Now more than ever, we need someone that has the leadership to deal with a broken Washington,” Haley said, adding that Romney to his credit is “not part of the chaos” in the nation’s capital.
