When Nikki Haley Will Call it Quits…


By now, you’ve likely heard all about former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s recent loss in her home state. And while she’s promised to press on for now, she seems to admit there is an end in sight.

No one can say that Haley isn’t a fighter. I mean, from the get-go, there was no real shot at her winning, at least not against the giant of Donald Trump. And yet, she’s pressed on, in state after state, loss after loss, no matter what.

But it seems her most recent loss, that of her beloved South Carolina, might have taken the rug out from under her.

She won 39.5 percent of the vote in Palmetto State, leaving Trump with a whopping 59.8 percent, The New York Times reported.

While that had to sting, it also had to be a moment of clear reality. As USA Today reported, no major party candidate has won their party’s nomination after losing their home state since 1972. So the odds just don’t look to be in Haley’s favor.

But, as I said, she’s pressing on… at least until Super Tuesday.

According to her, she can’t give “up this fight when a majority of Americans disapprove of both Donald Trump and Joe Biden.” She then went on to explain that South Carolina is only the fourth state to primary so far. So, not too many people have spoken yet.

However, “in the next 10 days, another 21 states and territories will speak.”

And with that in mind she says she has to give people a ‘right to a real choice, not a Soviet-style election with only one candidate. And I have a duty to give them that choice.”

But she admits she hasn’t even begun to look past Super Tuesday, a day when 16 states will primary.

“We’re going to keep going all the way through Super Tuesday. That’s as far as I’ve thought in terms of going forward.”

I guess she can see the writing on the wall, after all.
