Nikki Haley Vows To Keep Campaigning Despite Devastating Loss

Former South Carolina governor and failing Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley has vowed to stay in the GOP primary race despite suffering repeated losses by massive margins, including most recently in her home state.

Haley vowed to keep her campaign going in a speech following the devastating loss in South Carolina, where former president and current GOP primary frontrunner Donald Trump beat her by a staggering 20 points, 59.8% to 39.5%. Haley has lost every single race thus far by a significant margin, even losing to “none of these candidates” in Nevada by nearly 30 points.

All of these losses happened despite evidence that Democrat voters switched party affiliation to vote for Haley in the GOP primary, many of whom have outright told reporters that their vote was an effort to subvert Trump and they were still planning to vote for President Joe Biden in the general election even if Haley becomes the GOP nominee.

Despite being decimated in the South Carolina race, which was especially humiliating considering the fact that it is her home state, Haley gave a speech declaring that her campaign was not over — claiming that she was the only candidate who could beat Biden, despite the fact that she can’t even win a primary race with the help of Biden supporters.

“It seems like our country is falling apart. But here’s the thing. America will come apart if we make the wrong choices. This has never been about me or my political future. We need to beat Joe Biden in November,” Haley told a crowd of supporters after the primary results were announced. “I don’t believe Donald Trump can beat Joe Biden. Nearly every day, Trump drives people away including with his comments just yesterday. Today in South Carolina, we’re getting around 40% of the vote. That’s about what we got New Hampshire, too.”

“I said earlier this week that no matter what happens in South Carolina, I would continue to run for office. I’m a woman of my word,” she later added. “I’m not giving up this fight when a majority of Americans disapprove of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden. South Carolina has spoken. We’re the fourth state to do so. In the next 10 days, another 21 states and territories will speak. They have the right to a real choice. Not a Soviet-style election with only one candidate. And I have a duty to give them that choice.”

“We can’t afford four more years of Biden’s failures or Trump’s lack of focus,” Haley continued. “We’re at 34 trillion in debt and counting. Not even a third of our eighth graders are proficient in reading. Families can’t afford groceries. Nine million illegals have come to our border with enough fentanyl to kill every single American. And beyond our borders, the world is on fire. War is spreading further every day. If we aren’t strong, those wars will draw America further in. And it’s not just about policies. We won’t get out of our downward spiral if we keep obsessing over the past. Does anyone seriously think Joe Biden or Donald Trump will unite our country to solve our problems?”
