COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) – South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has decided to attend the Republican National Convention in Ohio next month.

Spokesman Rob Godfrey said Tuesday that Haley will attend alongside South Carolina’s delegation. But, unlike in 2012, she has no plans to address the convention.

The Republican governor has been very vocal in her criticism of Donald Trump. But Haley has continued to say she would support the Republican nominee. She endorsed Marco Rubio ahead of South Carolina’s presidential primary.

Earlier this month, Haley said she wished Trump communicated differently because bad things result from divisive rhetoric, as evidenced by last June’s massacre at a historic black church in Charleston.

Haley said then she would wait until after the legislative session to make a decision about Cleveland. The session ended last Wednesday.
