Governor Nikki Haley recently reaffirmed her support for Donald Trump, vowing to vote for the GOP nominee despite his attacks on her earlier this year.
“That doesn’t mean it’s an easy vote,” Haley, a Republican, said at a news conference on Wednesday. “But it does mean that I’m watching out for the people of South Carolina and I’m watching out for the people of this country, and that’s who I will be voting for on November 8.” Haley said.
Haley got caught in Trump’s Twitter cross-hairs when she endorsed Sen. Marco Rubio in the during the GOP primary.
Since then, Haley has said that she intends to vote for Trump, but her support has been tepid. On Wednesday, Haley said the 2016 campaign has left her disgusted.
“I think I’ve been really clear. This election has turned my stomach upside down,” she said. “It has been embarrassing for both parties. It’s not something that the country deserves, but it’s what we’ve got.”
