( – Nikki Haley, a Republican candidate for the presidency, has sought Secret Service protection due to an uptick in threats encountered during her campaign, as confirmed by her team to Fox News. Haley, who has previously served as the Governor of South Carolina and as the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations under the Trump administration, remains the principal challenger to Donald Trump for the 2024 Republican nomination.

In a recent discussion with The Wall Street Journal, Haley elaborated on her decision to request additional security measures, citing several incidents that have occurred on the campaign trail. Despite these challenges, she remains undeterred in her campaign efforts.

At a press briefing in Columbia, South Carolina, Haley acknowledged the security concerns that come with running a high-profile campaign, stating that it’s a part of the process and emphasizing the need for increased protection. She assured, however, that these concerns have not hindered her ability to engage with voters and continue her campaign activities.

An incident involving a heckler at a campaign event in Hilton Head, South Carolina, occurred shortly after Haley’s comments to the media, highlighting the security challenges faced by her campaign.

Haley’s campaign has gained traction in recent months, following strong debate performances and the withdrawal of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis from the race, which has narrowed the field to a contest primarily between Haley and Trump. Despite trailing Trump in the New Hampshire primary and facing a significant gap in the upcoming South Carolina GOP primary according to recent polls, Haley continues to actively campaign and connect with voters across the country.
