Right-to-work state Governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina has endorsed Mitt Romney for the GOP presidential nomination. Out of all endorsements so far, hers could carry the most weight because she has been battling the federal government and the National Labor Relations Board over opening a Boeing manufacturing plant in state for months.

Haley said Friday on Fox News she is throwing all of her support behind Romney in the Republican primaries. She says jobs, the economy and spending are most important and the former Massachusetts governor is the best candidate to address those issues.

Haley also says President Barack Obama seems most afraid to face Romney.

Haley will campaign with Romney on Saturday. Between Haley and New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, Romney's got some heavy hitters pulling for him.
