BREAKING: Nikki Haley Reverses, Makes Major Announcement

Former 2024 presidential candidate Nikki Haley has released the several dozen delegates she secured during the Republican primaries and has encouraged them to vote for former President Donald Trump at the upcoming Republican National Convention.

“The nominating convention is a time for Republican unity. Joe Biden is not competent to serve a second term and Kamala Harris would be a disaster for America. We need a president who will hold our enemies to account, secure our border, cut our debt, and get our economy back on track. I encourage my delegates to support Donald Trump next week in Milwaukee,” Haley declared.

Haley’s campaign reported that she garnered 97 delegates from the primaries.

Trump already has the 1,215 delegates needed to be the presumptive Republican nominee, so Haley’s release of delegates won’t significantly impact the convention. Additionally, state party regulations influence the delegates’ ability to cast votes at the convention.

Haley’s spokeswoman, Chaney Denton, stated that the former South Carolina governor will not attend the convention.

“She was not invited, and she’s fine with that,” Denton said. “Trump deserves the convention he wants. She’s made it clear she’s voting for him and wishes him the best.”

In May, Haley announced she would vote for Trump despite her previous criticism of him.

“I will be voting for Trump,” Haley said. “Having said that, I stand by what I said in my suspension speech.”

Former South Carolina governor and 2024 GOP presidential contender Nikki Haley has advised her party to prepare for President Joe Biden to be replaced with a “younger” and more “vibrant” candidate.

“They are going to be smart about it. They’re going to bring somebody younger. They’re going to bring somebody vibrant. They’re going to bring somebody tested,” Haley told The Wall Street Journal after Biden’s debate performance against former President Donald Trump.

“This is a time for Republicans to prepare and get ready for what’s to come because there is no way that there will be a surviving Democratic Party if they allow Joe Biden to continue to be the candidate,” she added.

Referring to Biden’s performance, Haley noted further: “Our enemies just saw that they have between now and Jan. 20 to do whatever it is they want to do.”

Haley and Trump had a contentious and sometimes bitter rivalry during the primary season, but she told the WSJ that she had recently reached out to the former president, whom she served as UN ambassador, and that the two of them had “a good conversation.”

She also said in May she planned to vote for him in November. Trump has since said he expects Haley to be “on our team” in some capacity should he win in November.

Haley has accepted an offer to join the Washington, D.C.-based Hudson Institute.

“Nikki is a proven, effective leader on both foreign and domestic policy. In an era of worldwide political upheaval, she has remained a steadfast defender of freedom and an effective advocate for American security and prosperity. We are honored to have her join the Hudson team,” Hudson President and CEO John P. Walters noted in a statement.

During her White House campaign, Haley advocated for a robust U.S. foreign policy approach to address global flashpoints like the conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the clashes involving Israel and Hamas.

This stance often contrasted with Trump’s “America First” agenda, which aimed to avoid international engagements.
