EMBATTLED SC GOVERNOR GIVING KEYNOTE ADDRESS AT HERITAGE FOUNDATION EVENT
After a brief break due to the hacking scandal that continues to rock her Department of Revenue (SCDOR), S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley is resuming her national political activities.
The first-term “Republican” will give the keynote address at a post-election panel discussion being hosted in Chicago, Illinois by the Heritage Foundation – a conservative think tank. Haley’s speech – which will be given at the Chicago Ritz Carlton – is scheduled for 1:00 p.m. EST on Tuesday, November 27.
Despite mounting problems (and multiple ideological retreats) at home, Haley is still viewed as a “conservative” and a “rising star” nationally. In fact she recently made a 2016 GOP presidential short list compiled by CBS News.
What will Haley have to say about the recently concluded presidential election?
Well, she endorsed former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney prior to the Palmetto State’s “First in the South” presidential primary and aggressively campaigned for him across the country during the 2012 general election … so it’s doubtful she’ll join the recent chorus of establishment GOP criticism of the party’s former standard-bearer.
