Top Indian-American politician Nikki Haley planning to launch for 2024 White House bid on Feb. 15
Washington : Prominent Indian-American Republican Party leader Nikki Haley is poised to launch her 2024 White House bid on February 15 — positioning herself to be the first challenger to former US president Donald Trump.
Haley, 51, is the two-term Governor of South Carolina and the former US Ambassador to the United Nations. When she enters the race, Haley will be the first contender to join the contest against her former boss, who is currently the sole Republican seeking his party’s 2024 nomination. Trump, 76, launched his White House bid last year. Haley could release a video signalling her plans as soon as this week, according to the Washington Post.
According to an invitation soon going out to her backers, Haley’s advertised “special announcement” will come February 15 at the The Shed at the Charleston Visitor Center, a downtown gathering spot that could draw hundreds of supporters into the heart of the city’s tourism district, The Post and Courier reported.
