Nikki Haley suspends campaign after Super Tuesday losses

by | Mar 6, 2024

Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, who was President Donald Trump's last remaining rival for the GOP nomination, suspended her 2024 campaign on Wednesday morning. This decision comes after experiencing losses in the majority of Super Tuesday states.

Despite staying in the race for over a year and securing only two primary wins in Washington, D.C., and Vermont, Haley announced the end of her campaign during a speech in Charleston, South Carolina, as reported by multiple outlets. This move effectively positions Trump as the presumptive party nominee to challenge Joe Biden in November.

Haley will also  not immediately endorse Trump, according to the familiar sources.

In the initial nominating states, the former governor didn't secure any wins, placing third in Iowa, second in New Hampshire, and in her home state of South Carolina. In the Nevada primary, she trailed behind the “None of These Candidates” option, which didn't count towards delegates. Additionally, Haley lost the Michigan primary and caucus to Trump, along with the contests in Idaho and Missouri.

In Monday's North Dakota caucus, Trump surpassed Haley with an 84.6% to 14.2% margin. He also clinched victories in nearly all of the Super Tuesday contests the following day. However, Haley managed to narrowly secure a win in the blue state of Vermont, leading with 49.9% against Trump's 45.9%.
