Nikki Haley: State’s First Minority Governor … Or Not?:
"The daughter of Sikh immigrants from India, Haley downplayed her race during her come-from-behind campaign for governor in the 2010 elections; however, the national media has often played up her Indian-American heritage.
While the governor self-identifies as white, her sister self-identifies as Asian on her voter registration card, according to an official at the Lexington County Election Commission.
The options when filling out a South Carolina voter registration card are white, black/African-American, Asian, Hispanic, Native American and other (specify), according to State Election Commission spokesman Chris Whitmire."
