    S.C. governor says she won't endorse Trump

    The Latest: SC governor says she won't endorse Trump

    US News & World Report‎ -19 mins ago


    4:00 p.m.


    South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley
    says she may not endorse anyone ahead of Saturday's first-in-the-South GOP primary, but if she does, it certainly won't be Donald Trump.


    Haley said Tuesday she's still trying to make up her mind. But she said Trump represents "everything a governor doesn't want in a president." On Monday, Trump said Haley's not fighting the federal government hard enough on Syrian refugees and Guantanamo detainees.


    Haley says Trump doesn't know what he's talking about. She says governors want a president who will work with and fight for them, not come into their state and bash them. She called Trump's comments "quite Obama-like."

    I'd say this is a big plus for Trump. He doesn't have to worry about offending her now, just in case he was.

    Nikki Haley to endorse Marco Rubio

    By Dana Bash, Eric Bradner and Jeff Zeleny, CNN
    Updated 2:29 PM ET, Wed February 17, 2016



    Washington (CNN)South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is endorsing Marco Rubio, giving the Florida senator a huge boost just days before the state's crucial Saturday primary.

    Haley's endorsement is expected to come at a 6 p.m. Wednesday event in Chapin. She'll then be on the campaign trail with Rubio through Saturday's primary.

    The popular second-term governor's endorsement could help Rubio, who is facing attacks from both Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush ahead of Saturday's vote.

    An adviser to Haley and a source close to Rubio's campaign confirmed her endorsement to CNN.

    It was first reported by state's biggest papers, The State in Columbia and The Charleston Post and Courier.

    The current leader in South Carolina, according to a CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday, is Donald Trump, with 38% support. He's trailed by Cruz with 22%, Rubio with 14%, Bush with 10%, Ben Carson at 6% and Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 4%.

    Haley is just the latest South Carolina Republican whose support Rubio has picked up. He is also backed by Sen. Tim Scott and Rep. Trey Gowdy, two high-profile members of the state's congressional delegation.

    Haley has long made her distaste for Trump clear, including a shot at the Republican front-runner in the State of the Union response she delivered for the GOP this year.

    "During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices," Haley said during that speech from the governor's residence in Columbia. "We must resist that temptation. No one who is willing to work hard, abide by our laws, and love our traditions should ever feel unwelcome in this country.

    As we all know, to support Rubio is to support amnesty and open borders! If anyone ever had any doubts as to where Haley stood on those issues before, you can now erase them from your mind!
