Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley on Fox News: I'm In This For The Long Haul

January 22, 2024

FRANKLIN, N.H. – In an interview with Fox News' Martha MacCallum in Franklin, New Hampshire today, Nikki Haley spelled out her plans in no uncertain terms: she's not going anywhere.

Watch her interview on The Story here.

Haley on the momentum on the ground…

"Hundreds of people at every one of our events - 1,200 people last night, hundreds today - they're saying they want something different. And they don't care about any poll they see. They know that they have a chance to change the direction of our country tomorrow. And I think you're going to see them show up and do that."

Haley on the impact of staying focused on results and policy…

"You know, it's amazing. You look at the fact we are seeing suburban women come back to us. We're seeing young college kids come back into the fold with us. Because they want to see somebody who's going to be a new voice, a fresh voice, a fighter for them. That's what we care about. That's what we've always cared about is normal people. We don't care about the political class. We don't care about those that are trying to fight for the power of stuff. We want to just get normal people, and we want it to be in a way that they feel safe and they feel comfortable and they feel like someone's fighting for them. And I think that's what's missing in America right now."


"And at the end of the day, you do results and policy. It's no drama with me. There's no personal feelings with me. This is about the fact that we have a country to save. I have a husband serving overseas. I've got a daughter who just got married, and I saw how hard it was for them to buy a home. We need to start making sure that we get the economy back on track, we get education back to the basics, we secure our border with no more excuses, we bring law and order back to our country, and that we prevent wars and start putting our enemies on their heels. That's what I want for America."

Haley on running against the establishment …

"This is a marathon. It's not a sprint. The political and media elite say everybody needs to coalesce around Donald Trump. He literally got 56,000 votes out of a state of 3 million. That's it. We don't believe in coronations in this country. We believe in democracy. I'm in this for the long haul."


"Martha, I'm running to win this race. And as much as everybody wants to talk about what I'm going to do, at some point y'all are going to realize that I won this race, and you're going to have to accept it when I say I told you so. It is slow and steady in this race. I've done that the entire time. We're going to finish it. I don't want anything else. I'm running to be president. I'm not going to pull out because somebody wants to be coronated.

"I'm not going to pull out because they think that I shouldn't be there. The political class has never thought I should be here. In South Carolina, in Congress, at the UN, no one has ever thought I should be here. And that's exactly why I should be here, because I'm fighting for normal people, and I'll always do that."
