UPDATE: Gov. Nikki Haley still has not commented on rumors that she's being considered for secretary of state, but after Scarborough's tweet this afternoon, the Post and Courier reported that Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster confirmed both he and Haley are being considered for Trump administration posts. McMaster is also reportedly considering a run for governor in 2018, an election that will likely draw a number of other Republican candidates.
Sources tell me Donald Trump is now considering Governor Nikki Haley for Secretary of State.— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) November 16, 2016
Most of the talk about South Carolinians who could get pulled into a Donald Trump administration has been about Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster, who supported Trump early and has served in state government for years. But what about someone different? Someone younger. Maybe with fewer years of political experience, but experience at higher levels than McMaster. What about Gov. Nikki Haley?Well, that's what MSNBC drive time talker Joe Scarborough says he's heard... Morning Joe says Trump has been on the horn making conciliatory calls to try to secure some key administration posts. And Joe says Gov. Nikki Haley might, could be, maybe is, reportedly on that list.
