Former U.N. Ambassador Nicki Haley is fueling speculation about whether she is considering a run for president in 2024 when she appeared in New Hampshire to endorse her successor as U.N. Ambassador Matt Mowers for Congress in the state.
“I just don’t want someone who can win. I want someone who when they win, they’re going to prove they deserve to be there. Because when Republicans win in 2022, we have to prove to America that Republicans deserve to be there by getting things done,” Haley said.
Mowers “knows the bureaucracy in DC because he had to work in it,” she continued. “He knows how to fight it. He knows how to cut through it…there’s not going to be a learning curve for Matt Mowers.”
Haley also campaigned for Mowers in 2020, when he won the Republican nomination but lost the general election to Democratic Rep. Chris Pappas by five points. Pappas is considered vulnerable in his run for re-election, particularly as Republicans currently have the lead over Republicans in the generic ballot.
Haley seemed to indicate that she is considering a run for the nomination in 2024, saying, “I don’t have to make a decision until the first of next year. But I can tell you I’ve never lost a race. I’m not going to start now. I’ll put a thousand percent into it and finish it. .. I’m going to fight for this country until my last breath, because I believe in her and I believe that we all have to be part of the solution.”
