WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today introduced South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley at her nomination hearing to be the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations.

  • GRAHAM: “Bottom line: America’s voice in the United Nations needs to be strong. It needs to be somebody that can bring people together. It needs to be a voice that understands what America is all about. I think Nikki Haley, our Governor in South Carolina, is the right person at the right time. She represents a combination of intellect, determination, grace, and an understanding of America that the world needs to hear.” https://youtu.be/Q4ECjegjBZY?t=3m18s
  • GRAHAM: “[Haley] has been the governor of our state during some of the most difficult times you could imagine: a one thousand-year-old flood, the massacre of nine people in a church in Charleston. She’s handled some of the most difficult experiences in modern South Carolina with grace, poise, determination and dignity. Trust me, it has been a tough year or so for South Carolina, and Governor Haley has brought us together and gotten us to places we should have been a long time ago. I think that skill set is exactly what the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations needs.” https://youtu.be/Q4ECjegjBZY?t=2m8s
