South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley had lunch with rock star Joan Jett Monday while she was in New York for the Republican Governors Association meeting.
According to a story posted to The State's website, Haley and her husband, Michael, lunched with Jett at the Peacock Alley restaurant in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York where the Republican Governors Association is meeting.
Jett heard the governor was a fan of hers and agreed to meet, Haley campaign spokesman Rob Godfrey told The State. It turns out the singer of "I Love Rock 'n Roll" is also a political junkie.
