Report: Nikki Haley to Drop Out of Race

According to a new report, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley plans to suspend her 2024 Presidential campaign in a speech to her supporters on Wednesday. The news follows her campaign’s blowout defeat to former President Donald Trump on Super Tuesday, who claimed primary victories in more than a dozen states. Haley’s exit from the race would leave Trump as the sole major candidate gunning for the GOP nomination.

The Wall Street Journal was the first to report that Haley would end her bid, citing “people familiar with her plans.” The newspaper wrote that the former U.N. Ambassador will appear in the Charleston area at 10:00 am Wednesday, where she will deliver the final remarks of her campaign. Shortly after publication, several other outlets reported similar stories, including Fox News and CNN.

The Journal also said Haley would not endorse Trump in her remarks but rather encourage the former President to “earn the support of Republican and independent voters who backed her.” Instead, She is expected to advocate for some of her policy issues and warn against isolationism and wasteful spending in Washington, D.C.

In a statement released late Tuesday night, a spokeswoman for Haley’s campaign took a shot at the former President. “Today, in state after state, there remains a large block of Republican primary voters who are expressing deep concerns about Donald Trump,” spokeswoman Olivia Perez-Cubas said. “That is not the unity our party needs for success.”

Out of 15 states up for grabs in the Super Tuesday primary elections, Haley could only claim victory in Vermont. In the evening, Haley had trailed Trump by 24 delegates to 122. Wednesday morning, that gulf has expanded to 89 delegates against Trump’s 995. At least 1,215 delegates are needed to win the nomination.

“They call it Super Tuesday for a reason. This is a big one,” Trump said in a speech to his supporters following his win. “This has been a day that we’ve been waiting for.”

“We have a great Republican Party with tremendous talent and we want to have unity and we’re going to have unity and going to happen very quickly,” Trump said. “I have been saying lately, success will bring unity to our country.”

Haley’s departure from the GOP primary would clear the way for a rematch between former President Trump and incumbent President Joe Biden. With Biden expected to officially secure the Democratic nomination before the end of the month, both parties are now gearing up for the general election fight.

General election polling currently favors Trump, with RealClearPolitics showing the GOP frontrunner ahead of Biden by roughly 3 points. Meanwhile, Biden’s job approval has remained underwater since August 2021. A New York Times poll conducted in late February found only 38 percent of Americans approved of Biden’s job performance, while 59 percent disapproved.

“Our cities are choking to death, our states are dying, and frankly, our country is dying, and we’re going to make America great again — greater than ever before!” Trump told his supporters Tuesday.
