Nikki Haley to endorse Romney? [UPDATED: Yes, she did]

POLITICO is reporting that a major endorsement is coming Mitt Romney's way:

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, one of the most sought-after remaining Republican endorsements, will come out for Mitt Romney Friday morning, POLITICO has learned. 
Haley will offer her formal endorsement on Fox and Friends, giving Romney an important boost ahead of South Carolina's primary next month. 
Romney had a solid debate performance tonight, and if this report is accurate, it's quite a feather in his cap. Governor Haley has solid conservative credentials, has a lot of tea party support, and would be an excellent advocate for any candidate who is lucky enough to have her on board.

If the report is accurate. If it ends up being more wishful thinking than reality, like the reports that endorsements were coming from Jim DeMint and Mike Huckabee, it could backfire dangerously.

UPDATE: Yes, Governor Haley did in fact endorse Romney this morning:
