COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Republican gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley will grace the cover of the latest issue of Newsweek.  The magazine named her one of several "women on the verge."

In the article, Haley is called "earthy, attractive, articulate, and the GOP's newest star in a fast-changing south."

Haley goes up against Democratic nominee state Sen. Vincent Sheheen the general election in November. If she wins, she'll be South Carolina's first female governor.

The issue hits newsstands this week.
