Fresh off her re-election victory, Gov. Nikki Haley took questions from reporters Thursday.
Haley brushed off speculation that she might be eyeing a higher office. She didn’t leak any details of her roads plan expected in January. And she said she is looking forward to an ethics ally (Henry McMaster) presiding over the Senate as lieutenant governor.
Haley also said she’s looking forward to having a better relationship with the state House’s post-Bobby Harrell leadership. It “can’t be any worse,” she said, adding that she has been “friends for a long time” with Harrell’s presumptive successor, Rep. Jay Lucas, R-Darlington.
But first, Haley said she’s focused on a trade mission to India next week. S.C. Commerce Secretary Bobby Hitt will provide details today about the Nov. 11-22 trip.
