The first is a sense of duty. When the President believes you have a major contribution to make to the welfare of our nation, and to our nation’s standing in the world, that is a calling that is important to heed. The second is a satisfaction with all that we have achieved in our state in the last six years and the knowledge that we are on a very strong footing.” UPI Another story notes “Last year, Haley signed into law a bill to stop efforts to boycott, divest and sanction Israel in a first for the nation on a state-wide level.” Jerusalem PostRead More »
