COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- The lawmaker who will be South Carolina's first woman governor says that history still needs to be made.
In her acceptance speech early Wednesday morning, Gov.-elect Nikki Haley said government has to start working for the people. The Republican state representative also vowed to make her supporters proud.
Haley beat Democrat Vincent Sheheen to win the governor's post being vacated by term-limited Gov. Mark Sanford.
In her speech, Haley thanked Sanford for fighting for taxpayers. She also said Sheheen was gracious in conceding the race.
