South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is being considered for secretary of state and at least one other position, Lt. Gov. Henry McMaster said Wednesday.

"Her name has been mentioned," McMaster, 69, told McClatchy. "The depths of consideration for the various names that have been mentioned for various things, I couldn’t tell you."

In addition, McMaster said that he was approached about being U.S. attorney general.

News of Haley's consideration was also disclosed on Twitter by "Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough:

Regarding his possibility of serving in a Trump White House, McMaster told McClatchy: "I’ve been asked if I would be interested."

He is a former South Carolina attorney general who was first to endorse Trump.

Others being considered for secretary of state include former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and former U.N. Ambassador John Bolton.

During the presidential primaries, Haley opposed Trump — instead endorsing Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and then Texas Sen. Ted Cruz after Rubio quit the race.

When she slammed Trump for not releasing his taxes, he hit back on Twitter:

Haley then responded:

As governor, Haley, 44, has traveled to Europe, the Far East and India to recruit business to South Carolina, according to the report.

She also is vice chair of the Republican Governors Association — and Haley is expected to head the group in 2018, when her gubernatorial term ends.

The governor’s office declined to comment Wednesday, McClatchy reports.
