South Carolina Gov.-elect Nikki Haley won’t remain neutral during her state’s crucial early 2012 presidential primary.
The Republican, who is set to take office in January, told The Associated Press Thursday that she will definitely make an endorsement.
“Absolutely!” Haley said, before adding that she’d make her pick “only after every one of them has had the opportunity to go out and meet with the constituents of South Carolina and hear their concerns. … What I want to do is let the people of South Carolina see them without any sort of emphasis on who I think is right.”
It could be a difficult choice for Haley, an Indian American who is the state’s first female governor, as she’s already received support from more than one likely 2012 candidate.
I’m not sure it’ll be so tough, given who endorsed Gov.-elect Haley before it was cool…and whom she endorsed in 2008.
Yes, you know who I mean!
