Haley endorses Rubio for president

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley said Wednesday she endorsed U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., for president because he is best suited to restore GOP principles of limited government and cutting debt to Washington.

“I want a president who understands they have to go back to Washington, D.C., and bring a conscience back to our Republicans,” Haley, a Lexington Republican, told a crowd of hundreds gathered outside a Chapin warehouse.

Haley said she made the decision as a mother who wants a safer, more prosperous nation for her children and as the wife of a combat veteran who wants more support for the military.

Haley did not say why she didn’t choose others candidates running in Saturday’s GOP primary.

“We have good people running for president, and I thank them today for their sacrifice and their willingness to serve,” she said. “But my job was to find the person I thought who could do it the best.

“I wanted someone with fight. I wanted somebody with passion. I wanted somebody who has the conviction to do the right thing,” she said. “But I wanted somebody humble enough (who) remembers that you work for all the people.”

    Before you jump from one Ricardo brother to the other, google Ted Cruz Agenda 21, Heidi Cruz Council on Foreign Relations etc. Ted is a “North” American. How convenient!

    Nikki Haley reminds me of Angela Merkel. Santorum when interviewed could not name a significant accomplishment by Rubio in the Senate. Rubio’s time in the Senate will be most remembered for being missing in action and the failed Gang of Eight Bill. One thing Rubio is good at is licking his lips. Ted Cruz is the best leader to be a two term president, possessing altruism and respect and understanding of the Constitution .

    Rubio also takes donations from pro- gay donor, Paul Singer.
