South Carolina governor Nikki Haley speaks at the 2016 Kemp Forum on Expanding Opportunity in ColumbiaBy Richard Cowan WASHINGTON (Reuters) – South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, in the Republican response to President Barack Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday, seized the spotlight to set herself apart from her party’s field of presidential candidates, calling for tolerance on immigration and civility in politics. In what some saw as a rebuke of Republican front-runner Donald Trump, Haley said: “During anxious times, it can be tempting to follow the siren call of the angriest voices.
