Nikki Haley Supports Removal of Confederate Flag

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley Calls for Removal of Confederate Flag From State Capitol

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley called for the removal of the Confederate flag from the grounds of the state Capitol Monday, less than a week after a 21-year-old White man gunned down nine people at a historic African American church. Support for the flag to come down from leaders around the state and around the country has been steadily growing in the wake of the devastating attack.

“Today, we are here in a moment of unity in our state, without ill will, to say it is time to move the flag from the Capitol grounds,” Haley said during a news conference attended by Republican senators Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, along with other state leaders.
