Governor Nikki Haley endorsed Mitt Romney this morning, making her announcement on “Fox & Friends.”
“Today is the day that I’m throwing all of my support behind Mitt Romney for president,” Ms. Haley said, speaking from South Carolina. “What I wanted was someone who knew what it was like to turn broken companies around.
Ms. Haley’s endorsement had been sought by almost all of the Republican candidates. She said that she had spoken to all of them except Ron Paul, who she said never called her office to ask.
With less than three weeks out from the first votes, Mr. Romney is trying to lock down the support of every Republican possible, including those who have the support of the Tea Party.
Haley is America’s youngest governor. She is not only the first Indian American but also the first Asian American and the first woman chief executive of one the country’s most conservative states.
