Gardner Votes to Recommend Governor Nikki Haley as UN Ambassador

Washington, DC – The Senate Foreign Relations Committee today recommended the Senate confirm Governor Nikki Haley as Ambassador to the United Nations (UN). A member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) voted in favor of Governor Haley’s nomination.

 

“The UN is in desperate need of U.S. leadership, particularly when it comes to standing up for one of our closest allies, Israel, and standing up to rogue regimes like Iran and North Korea. During her confirmation hearing, Governor Haley rejected the UN’s condemnation of Israel and committed to serving as a strong advocate for American principles of freedom and democracy. The United States must support its allies through action, and Governor Haley has demonstrated that she is willing to be a strong voice on behalf of the United States in the UN.”
