South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley says she’s open to being the running mate to the Republican nominee for president.

Speaking on NBC’s “Today” Wednesday, Haley said she’s willing to have a conversation about running as vice president once a nominee is selected.

“If a candidate wanted to sit down and talk, I would sit down and talk,” she said. “It’s a big decision, it’s a family decision. But absolutely, I would sit down and talk.”

 She also said that in her rebuttal to the State of the Union late Tuesday, she was taking aim at Donald Trump, as well as other members of the party and in the media, when she called on Americans to resist “the siren call of the angriest voices.”
