Earlier this morning, as she has for nearly every year of the RedState Gathering, South Carolina’s Governor Nikki Haley spoke to the Gathering’s attendees. This year, the Governor was able to tout another year of accomplishments since taking office: Continuing to lower her state’s unemployment rate from 11% to 5.3%–making South Carolina one of the fastest state growing economies in the nation, reforming the state’s | Read More »
