Will Nikki Haley run for president?

Rumors emerged Wednesday that Nikki Haley, a former US ambassador to the UN, will run for president. Why? Wednesday, Haley thrown out a Political Action Committee (PAC) called Stand for America. The Post and Courier Columbia, a local news outlet in South Carolina, said part of what the PAC will do is campaign for the candidates. Haley would have to travel for that, which would expose her more to the public and create “Republican allies ahead of a 2024 White House bid.”

On December 3, after losing his re-election campaign, Trump launched his own PAC, called the Save America PAC, in an effort to rally the support of his constituency to fight the election results. Haley’s spokeswoman told The Hill that the purpose of the PAC is to help rejuvenate politically conservative voices and figures in the House and Senate. The Senate turned blue in a historic vote on Jan. 5, with Democrats Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock winning the Georgia seats, as the world watched. The Hill also noted that the PAC treasurer is the same as the treasurer of the 2016 presidential campaign of the President of the United States, Donald Trump. The PAC website notes that it will focus on supporting candidates who strongly oppose specific policies, including reversing the recognition of Jerusalem as Israel’s capital and re-entry to the Iran nuclear deal. In August, Haley warned that Biden’s victory would mean a return to the Iran nuclear deal. Then recently, in December, he said that “it would be devastating and a huge setback” if the United States resumed the Iranian nuclear deal as it was originally formulated. Other policies that the PACs oppose are the implementation of socialist health care, the underfunding of the police and the army, and “undermining the sanctity of life.” In an email to supporters, Haley explained that the PAC “will serve as a bulwark against the liberal agendas of Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi,” The Hill reported.

Forbes drew attention to a recent poll, conducted by Morning Consult // Politico / that examines the Republican primaries for 2024. Haley ranked sixth on that list, amassing 5% of the first choice of respondents. Haley was serving her second term as governor of South Carolina when Trump appointed her United States ambassador to the UN in January 2017. She remained in that position until December 2018. “The Stand For America PAC was created to support principled conservatives. that we will join in this mission, “states the website.
