Haley Campaign Press Release - Nikki Haley on FOX: It's not about politics. It's about policy and results.

January 11, 2024

DES MOINES, Iowa – Following a commanding debate performance last night, Nikki Haley joined Fox and Friends this morning to discuss her momentum and Ron DeSantis' web of lies.

Haley on being policy and results focused...

"We've done over 150 town halls, and we have talked to every person, we've answered every question, we've shaked every hand. We feel good about this. I mean, look, politics isn't personal for me. The fellas might take it personally. It's not for me. We have a country to save. And while I can tell you that we know that the economy is out of control and we've got to get inflation back on track, we know we've got to get our kids reading, we've got to secure our border once and for all, it's not about politics. It's about policy and results."

On DeSantis' web of lies...

"Well, I think, look, we felt good about the debate last night. There have been lots of lies floating around. It's easier for us to put a website up and go and show that the fact checkers have all said that he's lying on dozens of things. So we put it on a website so we could deal with it. But what I can tell you now is our goal is to be strong in Iowa. We're going to move it to a two-person race when we get to New Hampshire. We're going to get stronger when it's in South Carolina. And we're going to finish it."

On her home state advantage in South Carolina...

"South Carolinians are very smart. They don't throw their vote away. So they want to see you fight for it. They want to see you work for it. And so I think they're watching what we do in Iowa. They're going to watch what we do in New Hampshire. And then they're going to wait until they see what's given to them in South Carolina. That's when you'll see things shift. Our approval numbers are very good in South Carolina because they know I fought for them. They know we fought to pass the toughest illegal immigration law in the country. They know we passed tort reform, that we passed voter I.D., that we, you know, turn South Carolina into the beast of the Southeast by bringing 11% unemployment down to 4%. So they're very proud of the work that we did and so we're gonna bring it back to South Carolina and we're gonna bring it back with momentum."
