The Herald (Rock Hill) - - Local & State - BY TOM BAR­TON tbar­[email protected]­ Tom Bar­ton: 803-771- 8304; @tjbar­ton83.

Out­go­ing U.S. am­bas­sador to the United Na­tions Nikki Ha­ley, the for­mer S.C. gover­nor, plans to stay in New York for the time be­ing.

“South Carolina will al­ways be home for Am­bas­sador Ha­ley and her fam­ily, and they look for­ward to re­turn­ing to their friends and fam­ily in the Pal­metto State af­ter her son (Nalin, 17) fin­ishes high school” in New York, Ha­ley spokesper­son Chaney Adams wrote in an email.

Ha­ley’s daugh­ter, Rena, is a stu­dent at Clem­son Univer­sity.

Ha­ley and her hus­band, Michael, sold their five-bed­room, 3,541square-foot Lexington County home at 340 Gover­nor’s Grant Blvd. for $405,000 to Brian and Lau­ren Prahl of Lexington, ac­cord­ing to on­line prop­erty records.

The sale first was re­ported by the S.C. po­lit­i­cal blog Fits News.

Ha­ley, 46, an­nounced in Oc­to­ber that she would re­sign at the end of the year. It is un­clear what her next move will be.

The Bam­berg native has been men­tioned as a po­ten­tial run­ning mate for Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump in 2020, if Vice Pres­i­dent Mike Pence is not on the GOP ticket.

Ha­ley also could tran­si­tion to a lu­cra­tive pri­vate­sec­tor job, said for­mer S.C. Repub­li­can Party chair­man Ka­ton Daw­son, adding he would not count out the Repub­li­can seek­ing elected of­fice again.

An April Quin­nip­iac Univer­sity poll found that 63 per­cent of U.S. vot­ers — in­clud­ing 55 per­cent of Democrats sur­veyed — ap­proved of Ha­ley’s job per­for­mance.

Daw­son also said he has seen a lot of in­ter­est from cor­po­ra­tions, with which he has done busi­ness, that are hop­ing to have Ha­ley join their board of di­rec­tors.

Ha­ley will be leav­ing pub­lic of­fice with up to $1 mil­lion in debt, ac­cord­ing to her pub­lic fi­nan­cial dis­clo­sure that she made as U.S. am­bas­sador to the United Na­tions.
