Washington, D.C. (AP) - South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says Donald Trump won election as president by running against both political parties.
Haley is telling conservative lawyers who are meeting in Washington Friday that Trump's victory offers Republicans a chance to regain the public's trust, but only if the party restrains spending and returns power to the states.
Haley says voters rejected "the political class of all stripes, Republicans included."
She says now Republican control of the White House and Congress offers the party a rare opportunity, and that it's important that Trump and Republican leaders in Congress take action quickly and "we don't stop."
Haley acknowledges that she was not Trump's "biggest cheerleader." But she said she voted for him and was thrilled that he won.
