Haley Refusing To Give Up Until Super Tuesday

Despite her low performance in her home state of South Carolina’s primary on Saturday, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is refusing to give up. Instead of bowing to calls to quit her campaign, she is hoping she can make up for her losses during March’s Super Tuesday contests where over a third of all delegates are up for grabs.

During her election night watch party in Charleston, South Carolina on Saturday after the primary, she argued that voters in Michigan and the 15 states in Super Tuesday deserve to have a choice other than President Donald Trump.

“America will come apart if we make the wrong choices. This has never been about me or my political future. We need to beat Joe Biden in November. I don’t believe Donald Trump can beat Joe Biden,” she said, adding, “I said earlier this week that no matter what happens in South Carolina, I would continue to run for President. I’m a woman of my word. I’m not giving up this fight when a majority of Americans disapprove of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden.”

Saturday’s primary yielded 39.5% of 98% of the votes and 3 of the 20 delegates for Haley, making her total delegates a total of 20. Trump maintained his winning streak, garnering 59.8% of the votes and 17 of the delegates up for grabs. In total, Trump has secured a total of 110 delegates.

Before Saturday, Haley said she would be sticking around for Super Tuesday regardless of the outcome of South Carolina’s primary, as she tried to pass the message that Trump should not represent the Republican Party in the 2024 election.

“I refuse to quit. South Carolina will vote on Saturday. But on Sunday, I’ll still be running for President. I’m not going anywhere,” she stated during a press conference on Tuesday.

Haley’s messaging last week was largely focused on the conviction that Trump should not be president again.

“I have a lot of concerns about Trump regaining the presidency. I have even more concerns about Joe Biden being president. I mean, you look at both of these men and all they have done is given us chaos, all they have given us is division,” she told NPR in an interview.

“We need to starting bringing normalcy back to America and that’s why I think we need to have a new generational leader that focuses on the solutions of the future instead of all the issues of the past,” she added.

She also appeared very confident that the GOP front runner will not win the general election in November if he becomes the party’s nominee.

Speaking with CNN’s Jake Tapper, she stated, “But if Donald Trump is the nominee, you can mark my words, he will not win a general election. And what I say to everybody is, don’t complain about what happens in a general election if you don’t really think about that in this primary. We can do better.”
