Kay Ivey, other governors back President Trump for Nobel Prize

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - - Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey,  South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster and a group of fellow governors are backing President Donald Trump's nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize.
    
McMaster and six fellow governors wrote to Norwegian Nobel Committee chairman Berit Reiss-Andersen this week, citing what they called Trump's "transformative efforts to bring peace to the Korean peninsula."
    
Earlier this month, 18 U.S. House Republicans formally nominated Trump, who's preparing for a historic summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un.
    
McMaster was an early Trump supporter in the 2016 election. Trump has backed him in next month's five-way South Carolina GOP primary.
    
Other signatories include Guam Gov. Eddie Baza Calvo; Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant; Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer; West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice; and Maine Gov. Paul LePage.
