Columbia, SC (WLTX) - South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is calling for Americans to unite following Donald Trump's historic presidential win.

"We congratulate President-elect Donald Trump on his historic victory," Haley wrote. "After a hard-fought campaign, where we have seen great passion and frustration among voters, the people have spoken. This is an opportunity for the country to unite and work together, and, as governor of South Carolina, I will partner with our new president to move our state and nation forward."

Haley had clashed somewhat with Trump over the last year, and she endorsed Marco Rubio before February's Republican primary in the state. But since he won the nomination, she had said that she would vote for him, and that he was the better option over Hillary Clinton.
