COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is in Missouri campaigning for the lone female in that state’s four-way Republican primary race for governor.
Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey posted a photo Monday on Twitter of Haley talking with Catherine Hanaway ahead of an event in Joplin, Missouri. Hanaway’s campaign says Haley will also join the Missouri House speaker at fundraisers in St. Louis and Carthage. It is Haley’s second trip to Missouri to support Hanaway.
Hanaway faces a suburban St. Louis businessman, a former Navy SEAL officer and the state’s lieutenant governor in a primary next month.
Haley became South Carolina governor after a come-from-behind win in the 2010 GOP primary over three men.
In last month’s GOP primaries in South Carolina, only two of the seven candidates she endorsed won.
