During one of her later appearances on Fox News, former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley seems to have shown some interest in the presidential seat come 2024.
While the host, Sean Hannity, listed all of the potential candidates she’d be running against with her potential campaign, Haley did nothing but smile and show absolute confidence in her abilities.
Former SC Governor Haley might be setting a man-trap for her fellow candidates
Hannity named all of the men she’d be up against; she just replied all of the Republican candidates are friends of hers and she believes the best woman should win.
It’s time for a new generation.
It’s time for new leadership.
And it’s time to take our country back.

Her experience as governor makes Haley more than a viable candidate for the 2024 presidential election; although she may be overshadowed by Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who’s overperformed this year.
While the line she dropped was somewhat sentimental and only indicative of the fact that she’s one of the few female candidates the GOP may have for 2024, it was also a hint of the strategy her campaign might take.
According to Haley, male Republicans have failed the party and its voters time and time again. She reiterated this later on in the interview when she reminded the show’s host that the GOP lost seven out of the last eight popular votes for the presidential seat.
It’s more than likely that Haley is riding the wave of changes that’s been surging through the Republican and conservative voter bases, which allowed female and non-white candidates to bubble up towards the surface.

A shift towards a more “progressive” GOP
This is reflected in the fact that a growing number of minority groups are slowly shifting towards a conservative mindset, more than likely caused by the woke ideology the left is spewing.
Many have proposed the idea of Haley being an excellent running mate in the 2024 election, but the former governor wasn’t having any of that. She’s claiming she’s willing to go up against any of the male candidates, whether it’s Trump, Pompeo, or DeSantis.
Pompeo, in particular, may receive the short end of the stick once Haley’s campaign kicks off to a start. His latest book, Never Give an Inch, heavily criticized Haley for supposedly trying to steal Mike Pence’s seat as vice president.
Haley brushed these allegations off, claiming that Pompeo’s book was so bland and boring that he had to resort to gossip to try and sell some extra copies.
Nikki Haley to launch presidential campaign against Trump as soon as next month. Well, this is embarrassing.

Unfortunately, what Pompeo probably didn’t see was that he’d fallen directly into Haley’s trap, one that would portray him as part of the Republican “old boy network” that the voter base is disappointed with.
This puts him in the same basket as Trump, whose campaign has been losing gas with each passing day, especially with more progressive candidate choices like Haley popping up from out of nowhere.
In the end, Haley’s only real competition might be Ron DeSantis. He’s been hailed as a breath of fresh air in the Republican party who’s single-handedly colored the entire state of Florida into a deep red during the past election cycle.
