South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is being considered for secretary of state by President-elect Donald Trump, reports said Wednesday. Haley is set to meet with Trump Thursday morning, CNN reported.
Trump-ally Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster told the Post and Courier earlier Wednesday that he and Haley were being considered for Cabinet positions in Trump's White House.
Haley had endorsed Florida Senator Marco Rubio during the primaries and was also critical of Trump in her Republican response to the State of the Union Address by U.S. President Barack Obama in January. However, before the general elections, Haley came out in support of Trump, saying that she would be voting for the business mogul from New York.
Haley is currently serving her second term as governor of South Carolina. She was the first woman to be elected to the office and is one of the youngest governors in the country.
She received the largest margin of victory for her re-election in the past 24 years and has overseen jobless rates hitting record lows, according to her official biography.
Haley is the daughter of Indian immigrants and is married to a captain in the Army National Guard. She has two teenage children.
