We spoke to our local delegates last night, asking them what they thought of Governor Nikki Haley’s speech at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla. Here’s what they had to say.
Randal Wallace: “I thought she did great especially pointing out how intrusive this administration has been on trying to stop Boeing, voter I.D. and regulations on business across the board. She is a star tonight. I think it needs to be said the attempt to stop Boeing was un-American on every level just to pay back the big unions. That was wrong for both Boeing and South Carolina workers.”
Jim Jerow: “Can you hear it? Its absolute bedlam,” he said speaking over the crowd after Ann Romney spoke. “Haley was terrific. She set a good tone and talked about her parents and their work. It was a great lead in for the lady that introduced Ann Romney who was just fantastic.”
Alan Clemmons: “Governor Haley’s speech was rousingly received by the RNC delegates. Her remarks about South Carolina’s fight against President Obama’s National Labor Relation Board and labor unions were on point. Boeing jobs are proof of our win in that fight. Governor Haley put a good face on South Carolina tonight, and it was a well-received, honest and welcoming face. She painted the reality of how the Obama administration has actively worked to raise barriers to industry in the Palmetto State, and how a Romney administration will break down such road blocks to success.”
