Haley Campaign Press Release - Nikki Haley's Iron Lady Weekend

March 04, 2024

CHARLESTON, S.C. — In the immortal words of Margaret Thatcher, "if you want something said, ask a man. If you want something done, ask a woman." Nikki Haley got a lot done this weekend.

On Friday, Haley picked up the endorsement of two U.S. Senators, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and Susan Collins of Maine. Voters in both Alaska and Maine will participate in their states' contests on Super Tuesday.

Here's what they're saying:

USA Today: "When all the fellas are falling in line, she showed why she's got a steel spine," Haley said of Collins during a rally at an Elks Club in Portland on Sunday, two days before Super Tuesday. "Thank you for showing the fellas that you've got more balls than them," Haley said, to cheers from the crowd.

The Hill: Sens. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Susan Collins (R-Maine) announced Friday their endorsements for former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley in the GOP presidential primary against former President Trump.

NBC News: Pressed on why not, she said simply, "Why not? … It's not just a situation where Nikki is the lesser of the evils. She is a qualified, competent, capable leader at a time when the country needs them. I refuse to accept that [Trump and Biden are] my only two choices."

Saturday and Sunday confirmed it yet again, Nikki Haley is the one candidate who can beat Joe Biden and get our nation back on track. New polls from the New York Times/Sienna and Fox News show her handedly beating Biden, while Donald Trump barely ekes out a statistical tie.

Here's what they're saying:

Fox News: Haley fares better than Trump against Biden, receiving 50% to Biden's 42% for an 8-point lead. That's outside the margin of error.

Politico: Notably, in two of the polls — the New York Times/Siena and Fox News surveys — former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley runs stronger than Trump in a head-to-head matchup with Biden.

And finally, Nikki Haley notched a historic win in Washington, D.C. on Sunday night when she became the first woman to ever win a Republican presidential primary. She earned 19 delegates after winning nearly two-thirds of the vote.

Here's what they're saying:

Axios: Nikki Haley makes history with D.C. Republican primary win

CBS News: The win also makes Haley the first woman to win a Republican primary in U.S. history.

As voters head to the polls on Super Tuesday, Haley continues to run full steam ahead, working diligently to earn every last vote. Her message of a return to normalcy, fiscal discipline, and peace through strength continues to resonate with people across the country.
