By Robert SchroederMarketWatch Pulse

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley will call for removing the Confederate flag from the Statehouse grounds later Monday, the Post & Courier reported. Haley, a Republican, will call for the flag's removal in the wake of the killings of nine people at a historic African-American church in Charleston last week. Haley has a news conference scheduled for 4 p.m. Eastern. Removing the flag from the grounds would require a two-thirds vote in the state House and Senate.
