New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R) found support from a fellow Palmetto state conservative on Thursday, after he apologized for the growing George Washington Bridge scandal.

“I’ve watched my friend Gov. Christie work through a difficult situation today,” South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) wrote on Facebook. “He did the right thing in taking responsibility in a tough situation. That’s the kind of leadership that earned him the huge level of trust he has in New Jersey.”
