Newly minted South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) will be endorsing in the 2012 GOP presidential race. And while she won’t say whom just yet, it sounds like at least a few candidates have some work to do earning her support.
In an interview with the Washington Post, Haley offered praise for Sarah Palin, Mitt Romney, and Haley Barbour, among others.
When it came to former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, though, she suggested his best years may be behind him.
“There was a place and time for him,” Haley said. “I think that there is a respect for him that he’s been there and done that.”
