This movement was never meant to be about a person.
It was never meant to be about an election.
This movement was about to be how we take our state -- country that.
So after a hard fought campaign she's making history as south Carolina's first female governor joined right now by South Carolina governor elect.
Nikki Haley governor elect how does that sound.
Sounds great and hasn't quite set and yet but we're certainly excited from state legislator to governor of this state was this so it has -- always been the goal.
Now it never was the -- you know what I saw eighteen months ago is I saw a federal and state government.
That was -- again it was.
Irresponsible on it spending it was intrusive and you know I just felt the need to jump in there because I didn't see anyone else it was really gonna fight for the people and help us take our state and country back.
I have always believed they'll complain about it do something about it and so I did.
So you're the first female governor of South Carolina as I mentioned you're also as an Indian American making some history to.
Is that a special feeling of pride.
I think it's as special feeling of pride for a lot of women and I think it's a special feeling of pride -- and certainly being an American community.
But what my focus is to make it a special issue of pride for the people of South Carolina and you know I know that people look at me and see that it's -- story.
But I hope what we do in January really is what makes the difference.
-- -- it got very personal with you I mean I don't know -- -- -- -- the Star Magazine over the Washington Post sometimes.
By the way they were getting very personal did you ever say this is not worth it.
You know I think sometimes god says you don't need to know and so we went forward and certainly we didn't expect how brutal the race would be.
But it was important you know when you fight against the establishment establishment fights back and what I hope my -- shows is that real people need to run.
This is something where we've got to get good people back in office we need to get people and -- don't care about reelection.
But that they show that -- common sense that's what I'm trying to do and that's what I hope to prove an office what do you think would happen had Sarah Palin knocked come down helped you out and stump for you -- supporting you.
Yeah it was interesting we had already seen the energy move -- artists in the spirit -- She certainly came in at a time that was crucial I think she's amazing at getting people to find the power their voice and so the fact that she came in the South Carolina.
And said we need to look at this candidate she's somebody worth paying attention to was great for us and I'll always be grateful.
And when you look at the first thing they do that you can put it together things to do list.
Which -- first line of attack.
You know when you give a man a job you give that he give a man tried and so we're gonna try and get a lot of pride in the state of South Carolina -- education would be number two.
Yeah I think it's the tax structure it's gone back to small businesses it's jobs it's creating an education system that works for South Carolina.
You know it's going back to the core functions of government government was intended to secure the rights and freedoms of the people it was never intended to be all things to all people.
We're gonna go back to the basics we're gonna go back to -- attacking him wanted to make sure we get real results the first year.
She's governor elect to South Carolina the first female to get that post and Indian American a lot of reason to be happy today thank you very much for joining us governor Nikki Haley thank you very much got to keep my pleasure thank you all right --
