Haley Campaign Press Release - ICYMI: In Newberry, Haley Says Enough Old Men

February 10, 2024

Newberry, S.C. – Nikki Haley kicked off her "Beast of the Southeast" bus tour this morning with a stop in Newberry. Afterwards, she spoke with the media about her opponents' lack of stamina and stressed the importance of mental competency tests for politicians over the age of 75.

Her campaign also distributed examples of the mental competency tests used by medical professionals, demonstrating that it should not be a difficult test for those who are seeking the highest office in the land.

Transcript From Press Gaggle:

HALEY: We're happy to be here [in Newberry] and happy to start off the bus tour. It's been an interesting few days, without question. [For months] I have always said that Joe Biden was not going to be president. You look at what's happened in the last couple of days, and you see exactly what I'm talking about. The fact that we're dealing with someone who the special counsel said that their memory was failing, that they are diminished…

It's bigger than just Joe Biden. You can look at the same thing: whether it's Donald Trump getting me confused with Nancy Pelosi, his temper tantrums, the things he's done.

It's time for a new generational leader. The party that dismisses their 80-year-old candidate is the party that will win the presidency, without a doubt. The Democrats are waking up to that now. You're going to see them make their moves.
