Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley: There's A Hole in the GOP's Ship

March 01, 2024

CHARLESTON, S.C. — Nikki Haley has three warnings for the Republican Party: America is teetering on a fiscal cliff, isolationism emboldens our adversaries and endangers our allies, and the GOP cannot win with Donald Trump.

In a new digital ad, titled "Sinking Ship," Haley lays out the facts for the GOP. There's a choice between chaos and division, or a new generation of conservative leadership and a return to normalcy.

Watch the video here.

"The Republican Party has never been about one man or one woman, it's always been about America, and how we can work together to make sure our best days are ahead of us," said Haley national spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas. "Nikki's in this fight because she knows the ship is taking on water, but she's not going to let it go down without a fight."

Since 2016, Trump's brand of anger and division has led Republicans to resounding electoral defeats year after year:

  • In 2017, Trump threw his support behind Roy Moore in the Alabama Senate race, only to see Moore lose in ruby-red Alabama to Democrat Doug Jones.
  • In 2018, Democrats netted 41 seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, giving Nancy Pelosi the speaker's gavel for the second time in two decades.
  • In 2020, Donald Trump lost his re-election bid, and Republicans lost the Senate after Trump's antics cost the GOP two Senate seats in Georgia.
  • In 2022, Republicans predicted a historic red wave given Biden's historically bad poll numbers. Instead, Republicans took back the House with the thinnest of margins and lost key Senate races around the country.
  • In 2023, Democrats kept Kentucky governorship and voters in Ohio codified the right to abortion in the state constitution.
  • In 2024, Republicans' razor-thin House majority got even slimmer when the GOP lost the special election in New York's Third Congressional District.
  • In 2024, powerful House Republicans are dropping like flies because they know Republicans won't keep the House with Trump on the ticket.
