The influential Republican governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley, will throw her support behind presidential candidate Marco Rubio before the state’s Saturday GOP primary, a source with knowledge of the governor’s decision told ABC News.

The endorsement will offer a last-minute boost to the Florida senator in a state where he is trailing behind front-runner Donald Trump and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

In the latest CNN-ORC poll, Rubio garnered 14 percent support, compared to 21 for Cruz and 37 for Trump.

Rubio had said Tuesday, “We’d love to have her endorsement. I don’t know if she intends to endorse at this stage … but if we could get it, we would love it. I’m not sure if she’s going to do it or not.”
