South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who became governor on January 12, 2011, is a rising star in the Republican Party and a possible vice presidential candidate.

To give Haley the benefit of the doubt, let's examine her first year in office according to the issues she laid out for voters while campaigning for governor.
