Report: Gov. Haley Leading Candidate for U.N. Ambassador

According to the Wall Street Journal, Haley is the top person to become UN Ambassador.

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - Another day, another report about a top job possibility for South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley in the new Trump Administration.

The Wall Street Journal reported Tuesday that Haley is the "leading candidate" for U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. That is the nation's  leader of the U.S. delegation to the U.N., and represents the U.S. on the United Nations Security Council.

Previous U.N. Ambassadors to the United Nations include former President George H.W. Bush and former Secretary of State Madeline Albright.

Haley had previously been mentioned as a candidate for Secretary of State, but the Journal quotes sources who say President-Elect Trump appears to leaning toward former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney for that job. He also is still mulling picking former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani for that post.

As for Haley, she met face-to-face with Donald Trump last Thursday, and said she had a "good conversation." When asked by reporters for further details this week, she declined to add more, saying that their talk was private. 

Haley had disagreements with Trump during the primary campaign, and she first supported Marco Rubio's candidacy, then Ted Cruz when Rubio dropped out. But after Trump became the nominee, she said she supported him, and said he was a far better option for America than Democrat Hillary Clinton. 

Haley has said she is excited about the possibility of what will happen now that Republicans control the White House and both chambers of Congress.
