Governor Nikki Haley has chosen Mitt Romney as her choice for president–again.
“The Governor Romney I knew in 2008 is different than the Governor Romney I met in 2011 because the Governor Romney in 2011 has had four years to think about it. He’s no longer a candidate that’s trying to win, he’s already a leader that knows what he wants to do the first day he gets in office and he’s ready to do it,” said Haley.
Haley endorsed Romney in 2008 when she was a state legislator. Romney threw his support behind Haley when she was running for governor.
In Greenville last week, Romney said he wants to hold President Obama to his word:
“This is a failed presidency. It’s time for this president to do what he said he was going to do. By the way, when he was shortly after he was inaugurated, he went on the Today Show and he said ‘If I can’t get this economy turned around in three years I’d be looking at a one-term proposition.’ We are here to collect!” said Romney.
Currently, Romney is second in the latest Winthrop University GOP poll—behind former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich.
