South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley says she’ll vote for Donald Trump, despite her reservations about his character.

“This is no longer a choice for me on personalities because I’m not a fan of either one, what it is about is policy,” she says.

She cited oppressive regulations from federal government agencies as a problem for South Carolina and the importance of the Supreme Court as reasons for her vote as well as the military.

“The best person based on the policies and dealing with things like Obamacare still is Donald Trump,” she said.

Haley said that the election had “turned my stomach upside down” and called it “embarrassing for both parties” but that “it’s what we’ve got.”

In February, the South Carolina governor angered Trump supporters after she implicitly criticized his campaign during her response to Obama’s State of the Union address.

Haley campaigned for Sen. Marco Rubio for president, but Trump beat the Florida senator by ten points in the Republican South Carolina presidential primary.
