Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is expected to announce her bid for the White House in February according to multiple news outlets.
On Tuesday, it was reported that Haley, who previously served as the former Republican governor, is going to launch her 2024 presidential campaign on Feb. 15. Depending on the next few weeks, this could potentially make her the first GOP member to openly challenge former President Trump for the 2024 Republican nomination.
The Post and Courier were the first two to cover this story after reportedly receiving an invitation to the announcement event. According to the report the announcement is set to be sent to Haley’s supporters within the next few days. They further note that the event is set to take place at the Charleston Visitor Center in the state’s largest city.
Haley has repeatedly hinted at her national ambitions, despite having previously said in 2021 that if former President Trump placed a bid on the White House she would not run. During a recent meeting at the Republican Jewish Coalition, Haley also reportedly said that she had “never lost” an election and that she was currently deciding whether or not she wanted to run.
In an interview with Fox News earlier this month she also added that Washington needed a new younger generation of leaders to take over and fix things. Another report notes that Haley recently called Trump to inform him of her plans to run for the White House.
