The official launch of Nikki Haley’s presidential campaign is getting closer. According to a person familiar with the preparations who is not authorized to discuss them publicly, the former South Carolina governor’s supporters will receive an email invitation to a launch event in Charleston on February 15, at which she planned to announce her campaign on Wednesday. The Post and Courier of Charleston was the first publication to report on Haley’s plans.
Before serving as United Nations ambassador for President Donald Trump, Haley, 51, was governor of South Carolina for six years. Haley will be the first candidate to enter the race against her former employer, who is presently the lone Republican seeking his party’s candidature for 2024 when she does so.

As part of his leadership team in the early-voting state, Trump was in South Carolina on Saturday for the first swing of his 2024 campaign. He was joined by Gov. Henry McMaster, who served as Haley’s lieutenant governor, and many GOP state legislators. Haley occasionally fought with other White House aides while promoting her public image throughout the Trump administration.
After she left the campaign in 2018, there were rumors that Haley may run against President Trump in 2020 or take Vice President Mike Pence‘s place. However, Haley did neither. Instead, Haley returned to South Carolina, where she acquired a house on Kiawah Island, joined the Boeing Co. board, and started a speaking career that reportedly earned her up to $200,000 in fees.
She wrote two books, a usual step people take to go to the White House. Haley initially questioned Trump’s political future following the Capitol siege on January 6, but she later declared she wouldn’t run against him in 2024. Haley stated to The Associated Press in 2021 that she “would not run if President Trump ran,” but she has subsequently changed her position and increased engagement through her Stand for America organization and political action committee, endorsing numerous candidates in the 2022 midterm elections.

Haley announced to a crowd at Clemson University before the end of last year that she would be “taking the holidays” to think about a run. Haley recently responded to a question about why she is now thinking about running for office despite her statements from 2021 by telling Fox News that “a lot has changed,” mentioning the U.S. economy, among other things.

She continued by saying she believed she could contribute to the “new generational transformation,” a subtly veiled allusion to Trump’s elderly age. On Saturday, Donald Trump told WIS-TV in South Carolina that Haley had contacted him earlier in the week to get his opinion. Trump referred to her earlier promise not to challenge him but said he didn’t try to stop her.
“She said she would never run against me because I was the greatest president, but people change their opinions, and they change what’s in their hearts,” Trump said. “So I said, if your heart wants to do it, you have to go do it.”
