Haley continues in a leadership and service capacity through public engagement and the Stand for America public policy group. The group receives donations through REVV and WinRed.

Digging In or Caving In

With regard to recent developments in the Republican Party, there seem to be a few paths people can take.

  1. DIG IN — Some party members are digging in and doubling down on traditional Republican policies and positions. They frequently refer to previous Republican Presidents and party leaders as guides for going forward. Examples would be Liz Cheney and Mitt Romney.
  2. CAVE IN — Some party members may not be enthusiastic about the direction the Republican Party is heading in, but they are giving into the new leadership to see where the parade is going.
  3. ALL IN — Some people are enthusiastic about the gritty rebranding of the Republican Party. They welcome a tougher rougher party.
  4. LEAVE — Some people are leaving the party to be independent, or make a statement by joining the Democratic Party.

Nikki Haley seems to be in the second group above. If she was sincere during her campaign, the advice she gave over many months was offered in a genuine effort to improve or save the party.

After many months of being critical of Trump, in May 2024, Haley announced that she would be voting for Trump for President.

Haley has been unfairly accused of abandoning her followers. In the first debate, Haley said she would vote for whoever the party chose. She’s keeping her promise. At this point, the majority in the party has spoken. Haley doesn’t have many options. She could fight against Trump — which would likely end her political career. There would not likely be a warm welcome if she tried to join with Democrats. As with children who are given advice, and reject it, she seems to be letting the majority of party members get what they want and suffer the consequences. She’s refusing to be kicked out of the party.

As Haley gets absorbed into the MAGA movement, there may be less unique news to report about her since she will be likely be echoing the familiar talking points of the MAGA movement with a glassy-eyed distant stare.

As unique news is available about Haley, an effort will be made to provide that here.
