There's a lot to like about Gov. Haley

GOP and Dems dukking it outOne of the up-and-coming stars of the Republican Party has been tapped to give the high-profile GOP response to President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night.

At 43 years old and already in her second term, South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is the youngest governor in the country. The daughter of immigrants from India, she is married to a National Guardsman and has two teenage kids.

In choosing her to deliver the Republican response to the president, House Speaker Paul Ryan (WI) touted the economic turnaround she has led in her state. Haley is proud of that, too.

"We now have one of the fastest-growing economies in the country," she asserts. "We have gone from an 11.1 percent unemployment rate to a 5.6 percent unemployment rate."

Pro-family leaders like her for that, as well as her record as a bulldog when it comes to justice for the unborn.

Nance

"She's very pro-life, including ordering the investigation of Planned Parenthood clinics," Concerned Women for America's Penny Nance tells OneNewsNow.

That investigation uncovered 21 violations of state laws, including having expired medications, improper waste disposal, and incomplete medical records.

Nance also believes Haley will bring women voters to the GOP. And as this will be President Obama's last State of the Union address, she hopes next year's response will be delivered by an up-and-coming Democrat.
