Governor Haley speaks at Republican National Convention
Written by Mallory Biering   

On Tuesday, August 28th, Bamberg Native, Governor Nikki Haley spoke at the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Tampa Bay, Florida. Hurricane Isaac threatened the area with his raging storm, but Governor Haley was able to attend the event, to make a speech supporting Republican Candidate for Presidency, Mitt Romney.

The supportive relationship the two political leaders share is nothing new. During the summer of 2010, Romney demonstrated his support for Haley's candidacy for governor during an appearance at Floyd and Dot's Restaurant in Bamberg. Now, as Haley returns the favor to Romney with her presence at the RNC, South Carolina shares the spotlight on the political stage.

Haley's accomplishments continue to assure South Carolina's political future. By looking at the efforts Haley put forth to achieve the position she currently holds, it is apparent the process was not as dazzling as it may have seemed. However, our governor is not afraid to stand up for the beliefs she holds, nor question decisions made by the other departments and members of government.

As Haley continues bringing a individualistic point of view to South Carolina politics, and support to Romney in his candidacy for presidency, it is certain the Bamberg Community will maintain a pride in knowing this quest is directed by one of our own.
