Could We See Nikki Haley Run For President as the ‘No Labels’ Candidate?

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Bipartisan political group No Labels still has not named a presidential candidate, despite having raised significant funds, drawing media perspectives.

Discontented Donors: Politico (Lean Left bias) spoke to several No Labels donors and others close to the organization, several of whom expressed discontent with the organization’s recent process. Without a candidate named, Politico concluded the door is ultimately open for GOP hopeful Nikki Haley, but that it “could be a longshot.”

Haley’s Broad Appeal: Juan Williams (Lean Left bias) writing for The Hill (Center bias) said Haley is the “number one prospect” for No Labels’ presidential candidate. Williams cited comments from No Labels’ political director, Joe Cunningham, where he said Haley has “broad appeal to independents, Democrats, Republicans” and how she has distanced herself from Trump-Republicans as reasons she could make sense to run as No Labels’ pick.

She’s A Republican: Jim Geraghty (Lean Right bias) of National Review (Lean Right bias) highlighted Haley’s recent denial of the possiblity of running as No Labels’ candidate, because she does not want to share the ticket with a Democratic vice presidential candidate. Geraghty also noted Cunningham’s recent comments, but concluded that amidst an “unusual” presidential race, “we shouldn’t be surprised” by “an unusual challenger.”
