South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) took a shot at Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal (R) for his administration’s response to a winter storm last week that crippled the city and stranded travelers, including Haley’s brother.
“While I was trying to fix South Carolina, I was furious at Georgia for not taking care of that,” Haley said according to the Charleston Business Journal.
Haley’s brother was stuck on an interstate highway near Atlanta for 27 hours because of the storm, according to the Business Journal.
Haley isn’t the only governor to address Deal’s handling of the storm. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the chairman of the Republican Governors Association, called Deal in response to the storm, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Deal has received a fair amount of criticism for the state’s lack of preparedness for the storm. A week earlier he apologized for the state’s response.
