COLUMBIA, SOUTH CAROLINA (The Nil Admirari) - Today, Governor of South Carolina Nikki Haley declared she hoped her state would be the one to convince former Governor of Florida Jeb Bush to quit the Republican presidential race. Haley's announcement followed her endorsement of U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, which she characterized as her doing her part to get Jeb Bush out of the race and save the GOP from Donald Trump.

"South Carolina really wants to be the state that wakes Jeb Bush up to the fact he is not going to be president. I've already done my part by endorsing Senator Marco Rubio," explained Haley.


Haley continued, "After spending hundreds of millions of dollars, Jeb barely has any support among Republicans. He's in fourth place behind Trump, Rubio, and Cruz in South Carolina."

"Jeb needs to suspend his campaign and get back to doing rich people stuff so the GOP can try to stop Donald Trump from destroying the party," stated Haley.


An unidentified member of the press asked Governor Haley who she thought would win the Republican primary election in South Carolina.

"Donald Trump," replied a despondent Haley.
