Nikki Haley appears to be considering White House run: 'I've never lost a race, I'm not going to lose now'

Haley emerged as a possible 2024 presidential contender following her two-year stint as ambassador to the United Nations during the Trump administration. Haley told Fox News last April that she would not run if former President Donald Trump mounts another campaign for the White House. 然而, 她的 recent visits to Iowa and a scheduled headline event at the end of the month suggest she is weighing a presidential run.

When asked about her White House ambitions on “福克纳焦点” 星期三, Haley said that she is holding off on making a decision to see if Republicans can reclaim a majority in the upcoming midterms.

If we don’t win in ‘22, there is no 24.. Once we win in ’22, Republicans have to prove we deserve to be there by results and solutions. I don’t have to make a decision until the first part of next year. If there’s a place for me, I’ve never lost a race. I’m not going to lose now,” Haley told Faulkner. “I’ll put 1,000% into it, and I’ll finish it. If there’s not a place for me, I will fight for this country until my last breath.

Faulkner noted that Haley’s responseis the furthest I’ve heard you get on this question.
