Gov. Nikki Haley will represent a key endorsement in the South Carolina presidential primary. So Rep. Michele Bachmann has to be happy that Haley joined her at a town hall meeting in North Charleston, S.C., Thursday, as Politico reports.

Haley has given compliments to the Minnesota congresswoman and fellow Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, but she hasn’t endorsed anyone yet.

Shortly after the town hall meeting began, South Carolina Rep. Tim Scott said he had a question from an undecided voter named Nikki. Haley entered from behind the stage and proceeded to blast President Barack Obama.

“Our president decided to allow the National Labor Relations Board to try to stop what Boeing is doing in South Carolina,” she said Haley, referring to the NRLB’s complaint that Boeing moved production of its new jet to South Carolina from Washington State to avoid union workers there.

“If you were president, knowing he is saying he can’t do anything because it’s an independent agency, what would you do?”

Bachmann’s response: “Why thank you for asking that question. If the NRLB would also be continuing their current stance, they may not last very long. Once they see what I do to the EPA, they may shape up.”
