SC Gov. Nikki Haley endorses Romney for President

Posted: Updated:

COLUMBIA, SC (WBTV) - South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has endorsed Mitt Romney for President, the candidate's office said in an early Friday morning email.

"It is an honor to have the endorsement of Governor Haley," said Romney, "As a successful businesswoman who entered public service so government could better serve the people, Governor Haley's career-long efforts to reform government, make government more accountable to the taxpayers, and fight wasteful spending should be examples for leaders across the country."

"The election next November will have ramifications for generations," said Gov. Haley. "Neither South Carolina nor the nation can afford four more years of President Obama, and Mitt Romney is the right person to take him on and get America back on track.  He is a conservative businessman who has spent his life working in the economy, and he understands exactly how jobs are created," she said.

Governor Haley will serve as Co-Chair of Romney for President's National Steering Committee, the email said.

"Our country will need real leadership to undo President Obama's failed policies, and replace them with the conservative principles Mitt Romney learned turning around businesses and a failing Olympics and successfully, conservatively governing a Democratic state. I am proud to endorse him and will work my hardest to ensure he is elected so we can turn around our country."
