Haley Denies Colbert's Senate Bid

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) denied comedian Stephen Colbert's efforts to be appointed to the soon-to-be-vacant U.S. Senate seat in a Facebook post: "You forget one thing, my friend. You didn't know our state drink. Big, big mistake."

Haley was referring to an interview earlier this year when Colbert didn't remember that milk is the official drink of South Carolina.
