Premi Posted February 14 Report Share Posted February 14 Wonder if this is a tactic to try become the 'vice-president'/'running-mate' of the Republican candidate https://edition.cnn.com/2023/02/14/politics/nikki-haley-2024-announcement/index.html Nikki Haley announces 2024 White House bid By Kate Sullivan, Terence Burlij and Kaitlan Collins, CNN Updated 11:27 AM EST, Tue February 14, 2023 Former South Carolina Republican Gov. Nikki Haley announced Tuesday in a video that she will run for president in 2024, becoming the first major rival to challenge former President Donald Trump for the GOP nomination. “The Washington establishment has failed us over and over and over again. It’s time for a new generation of leadership to rediscover fiscal responsibility, secure our border and strengthen our country, our pride and our purpose,” Haley, who is expected to deliver remarks Wednesday in Charleston at a campaign launch event, said in the video. Haley served as US ambassador to the United Nations under Trump. The former president, who announced his bid last year, recently appeared to bless her entrance into the race, telling reporters that she had called to tell him she was considering a campaign launch and that he had said, “You should do it.” GALLERY Haley, the daughter of Indian immigrants, opened the video talking about how she felt “different” growing up in Bamberg, South Carolina. “The railroad tracks divided the town by race. I was the proud daughter of Indian immigrants. Not Black, not White. I was different. But my mom would always say your job is not to focus on the differences but the similarities. And my parents reminded me and my siblings every day how blessed we were to live in America,” Haley said. If successful in the primary, Haley would be the first woman and the first Asian American nominated by the Republican Party for president. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
