Haley Campaign Press Release - Nikki Haley vs. Two Grumpy Old Men

February 09, 2024

CHARLESTON, S.C. – While the country is being submerged into chaos by two grumpy old men, Nikki Haley is the only candidate with the focus, stamina, and energy to make America normal again. Let's review:

Trump and D.C. Republicans this week:

  • Trump lost his quest for "total immunity" in court and pledged to spend millions more to appeal the case to the Supreme Court.
  • After announcing it was broke, the RNC imploded this week.
  • The GOP-controlled House suffered two embarrassing failures on the impeachment of Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and aid to Israel.
  • The Senate was forced to pull a border security bill because Trump demanded no action until November.

Biden and D.C. Democrats this week:

  • A special counsel report revealed Joe Biden has serious mental deficiencies: "We have also considered that, at trial, Mr. Biden would likely present himself to a jury, as he did during our interview of him, as a sympathetic, well-meaning, elderly man with a poor memory."

  • Joe Biden held a disastrous press conference to try to beat back rumors of his mental incompetency. He did not succeed.

Nikki Haley this week:

  • Nikki Haley blitzed the state of California, raising a staggering $1.7 million.

  • A new poll from Marquette University shows Haley is the only Republican candidate who can knock down Democrats' blue wall in Wisconsin.

  • Haley earned the endorsement of the conservative Detroit News in the early voting state of Michigan.

  • While Trump is barely in South Carolina, Haley announced a two-week bus tour across the Palmetto State.

  • National Review has a new analysis poking holes in Trump's South Carolina lead.

"Everything Donald Trump touches explodes in chaos and incompetence," said Haley national spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas. "No wonder 70 percent of Americans don't want to see a Trump-Biden rematch. Nikki Haley is the only candidate with the focus and clarity to clean up Washington and deliver conservative results for the American people."
Here's what they're saying…

"I'm in this for the long haul," Haley emphasized at a campaign rally at the American Legion Hollywood Post 43 in Los Angeles on Wednesday evening…And she touted that you don't end up being "the last one standing against Donald Trump if you don't manage your money well. So yes, we are focused on making sure we have the resources."

National Review: Why Haley Probably Is Doing Better in South Carolina than the Polls Show

Pollsters generally do a fine job at a difficult task, and we should praise Monmouth for openly acknowledging the sampling challenge it faced. Savvy observers should look at the polls that will be released soon to see how other pollsters address this substantial hurdle. The more polling firms limit their sample to traditional GOP primary voters, the likelier they are to overstate Trump's already substantial edge.

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley's argument that she'd be a stronger general election candidate than former President Donald Trump got a boost on Wednesday from a new poll in a critical swing state.

Nikki Haley is the type of presidential candidate America says it wants. Younger, focused on the future and not obsessed with litigating past grievances, the Republican is ready to receive the presidential torch on behalf of her generation.

The tour is aiming to ramp up interest in South Carolina's early-voting period, which begins Monday, according to Haley's campaign. It's also a complement to her repeated critiques of Trump for not spending time in the state, as she's crisscrossed it, holding nearly a dozen campaign events across South Carolina in the past two weeks.
