COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - Gov. Nikki Haley says she is flat out not interested in becoming the next vice president of the United States, South Carolina's governor said in a statement late Wednesday evening.

The night after billionaire businessman Donald Trump became the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Haley said she would support his candidacy because it reflected the "will of the people."

However, despite political press speculation, she will not be serving in possible Trump presidency as his vice president.

"To the members of the press who are asking, while I am flattered to be mentioned and proud of what that says about the great things going on in South Carolina, my plate is full and I am not interested in serving as vice president," Haley said in a statement.

Trump all but sewed up the nomination on Wednesday after Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich dropped out of the race.
