South Carolina governor Nikki Haley says she is open to the idea of being the running mate to the Republican nominee for president.
Speaking on NBC on Wednesday, Haley says she's willing to have a conversation about running as vice-president once a nominee is selected.
"If I candidate wanted to sit down and talk, I would sit down and talk," she says.
She also says that in her rebuttal to President Barack Obama's State of the Union speech late Tuesday, she was taking aim at Donald Trump, as well as other members in the Republican party and in the media, when she called on Americans to resist "the siren call of the angriest voices."
Haley is the U.S.-born daughter of Indian immigrants.
