Nikki Haley, the former Governor of South Carolina and United States Ambassador to the United Nations, will be entering the 2024 presidential primary race here soon. In which she will become the second, following Former President Trump, to enter the GOP mashup. Haley is expected to make her announcement on February 15 at an event in Charleston. While she is a big candidate for the race, with some polls showing her as a viable option, here are five of the biggest questions she better prepare for – according to The Hill.
What exactly is her appeal?
- This is a question she will have to take into consideration when trying to figure out how she wants to brand herself. While she is different from other candidates, i.e. Trump and DeSantis, and is a woman who has accomplished many firsts in her time in politics – Haley will need to decide how she wants to use her history and what her message will be.
How strongly will she and Trump attack each other?
- From former co-workers and friends to campaign enemies, this will be an interesting rival to watch. While Haley had claimed earlier that she would only run if Trump didn’t she changed her mind. And had plenty to say to justice her change in heart. So now it means, we get to watch what could be an interesting battle.
What does her decision mean for other yet-to-declare candidates?
- What will her announcement mean for those in a similar situation as her? For the likes of Mike Pence and Mike Pompeo, two men whose brand is similar to Haley’s, will this delay or cancel their 2024 plans? Will this bring about more announcements overall – more rapidly? Will it affect polling outcomes?
Finally, does Nikki Haley have a real shot here?
- Does the former UN Ambassador and Governor have a real chance at becoming the GOP nomination and subsequently the President of the United States? She has skill, and accomplishment, but is that enough for her to become the president? She hasn’t been first in a single poll yet but maybe it is early and things could change… What do you think?
