In an effort to shake up the political landscape, former United Nations ambassador and Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley will appear on “Bsurveillance” this Monday at 7:30 a.m. ET. As South Carolina’s Feb. 24 primary approaches, Haley is stepping up her campaign to challenge Donald Trump’s grip on the state’s Republican voters.
Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has emerged as a formidable challenger in the Republican primary. His campaign has taken on new urgency as he seeks to unseat Donald Trump, who recently secured an easy victory in Nevada. While Trump held a rally in Conway, Haley chose to speak in Newberry, portraying Trump as an erratic and self-centered figure who is disconnected from the concerns of the American people.
Haley didn’t mince words in her online statement, criticizing both President Biden and former President Trump for being perceived as mentally unstable and elderly. She cited Biden’s recent gaffe about the Egyptian president and Trump confusing Haley with Nancy Pelosi as evidence.
Ms. Haley’s campaign is betting on her ability to appeal to independent voters in Massachusetts, who are currently facing an uphill battle against Mr. Trump in the primary. A recent USA TODAY Suffolk University poll shows Trump leading Haley 55-38 among likely Republican primary voters.
A call for ability
In a bold move, Haley called for mental competency tests for politicians, raising questions about the mental fitness of President Biden and his Republican rival Donald Trump. She argues that “Americans can do a better job than two 80-year-old presidents.”
Despite struggling to generate significant support for Trump in Massachusetts, Haley’s campaign remains hopeful. They are counting on her appeal to the state’s more educated and wealthy voters, as well as a large turnout of independent voters in the March 5 election.
