COLUMBIA, SC (AP) -

Gov. Nikki Haley has canceled scheduled events to spend time with her husband during a break from his deployment to Afghanistan.

Haley spokesman Rob Godfrey told The Associated Press that Capt. Michael Haley is in the state with his family for up to two weeks. Godfrey says the leave was planned and approved by the South Carolina National Guard. He declined to give further details.

The Republican governor canceled two public events Monday in Charleston. Those will be rescheduled. She has no planned events the rest of the week.

The governor and their two children bid Capt. Haley farewell at Fort Jackson in January. He was among 48 soldiers heading for a month of training before going to Afghanistan.

The unit is working to help Afghan farmers.
