Nikki Haley good morning to US.
Good morning thank you -- happen.
So we just mentioned -- historical ramifications of your victory.
You would be the first female governor of South Carolina.
And you would do it I would say through a lot of people coming after you in the past couple of weeks.
Where did you dig deep to find the resolve to continue.
-- handed goal is to keep on the message of reform we were really trying to show.
The people of this state where the power of their voice wasn't returning it back to.
Making sure that they were the ones in control and this was about spending this was about accountability it was about transparency and as we continue to move up in the polls.
The establishment fought back and I refuse to be distracted all it did was make me more determined -- I think it showed the greatness of the people of this state.
Not -- on the -- but again last night were really good.
He did go through some tough times it was a personal.
-- view in what was going on when you weren't campaigning and guess who comes to your -- Governor Palin.
-- which what did you know about Governor Palin prior to this and what did she give you and your campaign.
Fishing is great because she is gone across this country and show everyone what the power of their voice mean she's told them that.
And they need to fight for good government and so are coming to South Carolina was a great -- -- campaign.
She gave great advice she told me that it was going to be tough and the more we went up -- the -- that we get tougher and she's at once you get an office.
It's not gonna stop but you should remember who it is if she were -- keep on fighting I'm very grateful to -- -- greatest game.
Sure it also your campaign has been about.
Clear conservative ideas you know there are some and you know some -- chattering classes and the problem with the Republican Party right now.
-- they weren't very conservative they've kinda drifted into the middle and they're all over the place.
That you are very conservative.
Would you say that is -- That was really the key.
-- -- win over the last two elections now in the last couple weeks.
41 of those things that I priest was you know we've got a lot of Republicans that -- the talking points that have I'm a conservative actions associated with the talking points you.
The government needs to understand the value of the dollar they need to understand the fact that it's not what you spend it's how you spend.
It's the fact that they need to be accountable for all that they do it we need term limits.
Not only in South Carolina I think we need him on the federal level it's all about making sure the people are in control again and the elected officials remember who it is that they want.
Miss -- let me ask you this will the Republican Party in South Carolina now be behind you because to me the most interesting part of this entire campaign.
Was at the Republican Party decided to support your opponent Gresham Barrett.
And it seems to me a little bit like the good old boys club is that -- you -- Well you know I didn't focusing much on what was going on there what I focused on -- our message and I think the Republican Party.
Heard loud and clear that the people of South Carolina won't perform they want to put businesses top priority that want to make sure that spending is out of control.
I think the Republican Party will follow -- we've got the endorsement of attorney general Henry McMaster last week which was a great -- in the -- and I think that we'll have a lot of friends on board that understand that the conservative movement not just happening in South Carolina happening across the country it's a beautiful thing.
Okay well congratulations on the win last night and now you've got to.
You know it's full steam ahead toward November Nikki -- we thank you very much for joining us today from south Carol thank.
