Is that bad? She is the first Indian American female governor!??
South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley said the presence of a Confederate flag on the statehouse is okay because not “a single CEO” has complained about it.
Haley was debating with her opponents Tuesday when Democratic challenger Vincent Sheheen called for the removal of the flag. Haley recognized the subject as a “sensitive issue,” but rejected the idea of removing it.
“What I can tell you is over the last three and a half years, I spent a lot of my days on the phones with CEOs and recruiting jobs to this state,” she said. “I can honestly say I have not had one conversation with a single CEO about the Confederate flag.”
She did admit South Carolina has had race issues in the past but discussed the progress they had made.
