February 08, 2024

BOISE, Idaho — Nikki Haley for President announced her Idaho leadership team. Idahoans head to the polls in a March 2, 2024 caucus.

"Nikki Haley has the experience and toughness to put the chaos of the past behind us and make America strong and proud," said David Leroy. "She was a jobs governor who put taxpayers first in South Carolina and made America respected again as UN ambassador. Nikki Haley represents the bright future of our republic – commonsense policy at home and intelligent policy abroad."

"Idahoans are focused on the future, not the past," said Nikki Haley. "They want transparency in the classroom for their children, a strong economy that protects the American Dream, and a secure border that defends our homeland. Our Idaho leadership team is made up of committed Republicans who are putting in the work to save our country."

The team's co-chairs include former Attorney General and former Lt. Governor David Leroy; Tammy de Weerd, former mayor of Meridian; Tommy Ahlquist, local real estate developer and former emergency room doctor; and former state representative Kelley Packer.
