Nikki Haley — former U.S. ambassador to the U.N., and South Carolina governor — is headed later this week to Israel, where she'll tour an Iron Dome air-defense location, and meet with top government and defense officials.

Driving the news: Haley, who is continuing policy work through her Stand For America, was invited by Pastor John Hagee to join the Christians United for Israel mission.
