Gov. Nikki Haley canceled her public appearances for the second day in a row as her mother remains hospitalized. But the reason why Raj Randhawa was admitted to Palmetto Health Richland in Columbia on Monday has still not been released.
The Governor’s Office confirmed Haley would not visit A.C. Flora High School in Forest Acres as scheduled Wednesday. She was also supposed to meet with a pair of junior leadership groups at the Statehouse.
The 76-year-old Randhawa helped create and run the women’s clothing store Exotica International with her husband Ajit, but they have since retired. Both are immigrants from the Punjab state in India.
Haley’s spokesman Rob Godfrey acknowledged the governor was at the hospital with her family, but did not say why Randhawa was being treated.
