In Greenville yesterday, Governor Nikki Haley was attending the South Carolina Automotive Summit. She used the opportunity to make a pretty shocking statement.
Still, when asked by reporters at the Automotive Summit, she said the following:
We’ve said that we would support the nominee if they get the nomination. If it comes down to Trump, we don’t know if he could win a general and that’s a big concern.
So, she’d support Trump if he got the nomination, though she doesn’t believe he would be able to win. A shorter version of that is that Haley, like many in the Republican establishment, would rather fight on a losing team than work on being more bipartisan.
This is not something that was expected from the person who has been so vocal about her distaste for Trump.
