Ive been seeing quotes this morning saying Nikki Haley with be the first
South Carolinian to be elected President since George Washington. Now Im
not any kind of Washington scholar to be sure, but I cant think of any ties
he may have had with South Carolina. He was Virginia thru-and-thru. Right?
Am I missing something?

Likely she meant Andrew Jackson, who, near as I can tell, is the only President from SC

Henry Middleton and Henry Laurens, both from South Carolina, were Presidents of the Continental Congress.
