CLEVELAND (WACH) - South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is attending the festivities at this week's Republic National Convention in Cleveland with the rest of her Republican colleagues.

Wednesday morning, Haley spoke at the S.C. GOP Delegation Breakfast where she endorsed her party, but not necessarily the party's nominee for president.

Haley said that it's time to vote for Republicans, but never mentioned Donald Trump's name.

The governor instead focused her attention on her perceived pitfalls with the Democratic Party by downplaying President Barack Obama's time in the White House and being critical of presumptive presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.

Haley and Trump have been at odds virtually since the time Trump announced his run for the White House 13 months ago.

The two have had memorable back-and-forth squabbles over the last year.

The biggest blow to Trump from Haley is when the governor endorsed Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., just days before the First in the South Primary.
