Romney in SC campaigning with Gov. Nikki Haley

CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney is campaigning on the South Carolina coast with Gov. Nikki Haley.

The two are scheduled to appear at town hall meetings on Saturday in Charleston and Myrtle Beach.

Romney is looking for votes in advance of next month's South Carolina GOP presidential primary which is the first in the South.

The campaign appearances come a day after Haley endorsed the former Massachusetts governor.

Haley says Romney is the best candidate to address the issues of jobs and the economy. She also says that President Barack Obama seems most afraid of facing Romney.
