Haley Campaign Press Release - Haley: We Are Blessed to Live in America

February 24, 2024

KIAWAH ISLAND, S.C. – Like hundreds of thousands of South Carolinians will do today, Nikki Haley went to the polls. She was accompanied by her children, Nalin and Rena, her son-in-law, Josh, and her mother, Raj Randhawa.

After she, Mrs. Randhawa, and Nalin cast their ballots, Haley shared her reflections with Fox News on voting with three generations of her family.

Watch the clip here.

"Today was a day of complete gratitude. I had the opportunity to go to the voting booth with my mom. My mom was a lawyer in India. She was picked to be one of the first female judges to sit on the bench. But because of the times, it was too hard and she was never able to do that.

"She was able to stand with me as she voted for her daughter for President of the United States. That's a pretty amazing example of how blessed we are to live in America. So that is what I feel today. I feel a lot of gratitude towards my family. I feel a lot of gratitude towards the people of South Carolina.

"It was a blessing to serve the state that raised me. It's been a blessing to defend the country at the UN that I love so much and that's why I'm fighting for America. I think we have a country to save and we're not letting our foot up off the gas. We're getting through South Carolina today, we're headed to Michigan tomorrow, then we're headed to Super Tuesday states. America deserves better and more than that the younger generation deserves better. They deserve to know what normal is and that's what I'm trying to get them."
