Thank you, Governor Haley
Later today, Governor Nikki Haley is likely to be confirmed by the U.S. Senate as Ambassador to the United Nations. It’s a bittersweet moment for us South Carolinians.
Governor Haley was the right governor for the right time in South Carolina’s history.
She has led our state through so many difficult days with grace and humility. Due to Governor Haley’s hard work to foster a pro-jobs business climate, our state unemployment rate has fallen from 11.1% in 2011 to 4.3% today and more people working than ever before in South Carolina’s history.
We will miss Governor Haley’s strong, principled leadership- but we’ll also miss her compassion, kindness, and love for our state.
Please join me in praying for Governor Haley, Michael, and the Haley family as they begin a new chapter. God speed.
We also congratulate Lieutenant Governor Henry McMaster on his ascension to the Governor’s Office and wish him much success in the days and months ahead.
