South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is taking her heart -- and herself -- to San Francisco in a couple of months.

She will give the keynote address to the San Francisco GOP's Lincoln Reagan dinner on March 20.

The dinners are usually the year's largest fundraisers for local political parties.

Haley's national star has risen with a prime-time speaking spot at the 2012 Republican National Convention and seat on the Republican Governors Association executive committee.

She also is seeking re-election and has used out-of-state visits to raise money for her campaign.

She has a fundraiser planned in February in Raleigh.
