SC Gov. Haley endorses Rubio ahead of primary


South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is campaigning alongside Marco Rubio for the first time since endorsing his presidential bid.

The Republican governor campaigned alongside Rubio during a Wednesday evening event in suburban Columbia just hours after news her endorsement was announced.

She said there were a lot of good people running for president, but her job was to find one who could do the job best. She credited Rubio's fight, passion and conviction.

And she said she wanted to find a candidate who would prove to her immigrant parents they made a good decision by coming to America.

Haley said, "Ladies and gentlemen, if we elect Marco Rubio, every day will be a great day in America."

Rubio's Republican rival, Jeb Bush, described Haley as "the most meaningful endorsement there is" in South Carolina.
