South Carolina gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley is taking to the road to unveil her plans for creating jobs in the state she hopes to lead.
The GOP candidate tours businesses in both Columbia and Charleston on Wednesday, then heads to the Upstate on Thursday to discuss her jobs plan.
In June, the state's unemployment rate was 10.7 percent - down from 11.1 percent in May but still the seventh-worst jobless rate in the nation.
Back in June, the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce decided against endorsing Haley for governor, concerned she might not be able to get along with the Legislature and hurt business.
In recent weeks, Haley has embarked on a series of private meetings with business leaders to reassure them and to introduce herself.
