He pointed out that he and Haley share roots in the same small town of Bamberg, South Carolina. Despite their differing political stances, Bamberg believes they have the potential to complement each other well, aiming to make decisions that are in the best interest of all Americans.

Since 2015, he has served as the representative for House District 90, as stated on the official website of the South Carolina State House.

“I’m hoping this is an attempt at humor. She’s almost as bad as Trump. Biden for the win,” @liberama commented.

“That’s nice but the Constitution doesn’t allow it,“ @Theresa49500 commented. “The Constitution says the electors can’t cast their votes for a president AND a vice president from their state. They can run on same ticket but one of them would not get the 8 electoral college votes from South Carolina (assuming they win SC),“ @JonENelson responded.

“I couldn’t love this statement more. Working together is the way to go! Thank you for letting me know there is still some sanity in this world,” Terri Williams commented openly supporting the idea.

“You’d make a great team, we need more checks and balances! I’m a product of checks and balances, my parents always went together to cancel each other’s vote out. Daddy was a business man conservative and Mamma was a democrat through and through (probably because her Daddy was),” said user under the alias of @BabineauMikki.

Nikki Haley hasn’t responded to the request yet.
