Nikki Haley Announces 2024 Presidential Run

Summary from the AllSides News Team

Republican Nikki Haley announced her candidacy for the 2024 presidential election in a video on Tuesday.

The Details: Haley is the first Republican to challenge her former boss, former President Donald Trump, who announced his candidacy on Nov. 16 of last year, for the 2024 Republican nomination. Haley is expected to make an official announcement in Charleston, South Carolina on Wednesday before heading to a town hall event in New Hampshire. 

Key Quotes: "Republicans have lost the popular vote in seven out of the last eight presidential elections," Haley said. "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."

For Context: Haley's early announcement will allow her to get first crack at building support and raising money from donors who may be skeptical of Donald Trump. She is the daughter of Indian immigrants, and may turn out to be the only woman in the Republican field. She is a former governor of South Carolina and former United Nations Ambassador under Trump.

How the Media Covered It: Haley's video announcement was covered by sources across the political spectrum. Right-rated sources noted that Trump appeared to take aim at Haley from his Truth Social account by highlighting a video from last year in which she promised not to run. Some left-rated sources noted that Trump recently said Haley had called him about considering a run, and that he said "You should do it."
