Nikki Haley Says She’s ‘Not Going Anywhere’ as Trump Receives 182 South Carolina Endorsements

Nikki Haley said she plans to remain in the Republican presidential primary race against Donald Trump.

“I refuse to quit,” Haley declared. “South Carolina will vote on Saturday. But on Sunday, I will still be running for president. I’m not going anywhere. I’m campaigning every day until the last person votes.”

Meanwhile, Trump’s campaign announced it has reached 182 endorsements in South Carolina.

“Today, President Donald J. Trump announced that 15 current and former South Carolina sheriffs are endorsing his campaign for the presidency,” the campaign team shared on February 20. “In total, President Trump has received 182 endorsements from South Carolina’s staunchest conservative leaders, along with more than 250 Grassroots Leaders who announced their support last June.”

Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright said in a statement, “After three years and millions of illegal aliens and countless deadly drugs smuggled into the United States, South Carolinians need a strong and steady Commander in Chief. As the only Law and Order candidate running for president, President Trump has the unique experience and bold leadership to protect our families and communities. He secured our border once before, and he will do it once again.”

Former Charleston County Sheriff Al Cannon said that Haley needs to “step aside.”

“We saw brazen lawlessness erupt right here in Charleston in 2020, and security at home requires fearless leaders like President Trump, not weak-kneed politicians like Nikki Haley who kowtows to her globalist Democrat donors,” Cannon asserted. “President Trump is headed for a historic win in South Carolina, and it’s time for Nikki Haley to step aside and unite behind the only candidate who will defeat Joe Biden and restore our nation in November.”

Trump’s campaign released another statement, saying, “Nikki Haley’s campaign ends Saturday, February 24th, fittingly, in her home state, rejected by those who know her best.”

“Currently, President Trump has 62 delegates. If we were overly generous and applied a ‘worse case’ model reflecting Nikki Haley’s loss in New Hampshire across the remaining states and Congressional Districts, President Trump would earn 114 Delegates the week following the South Carolina Primary,” the campaign team added. “On Super Tuesday, under this very favorable model for Nikki, President Trump would win 773 Delegates. President Trump would win an additional 162 Delegates the following two weeks, after Super Tuesday. And, on March 19, under this most-generous model for Nikki, President Trump would win the Republican nomination for President.”

The campaign’s statement concluded its message by asking, “The true ‘State’ of Nikki Haley’s campaign? Broken down, out of ideas, out of gas, and completely outperformed by every measure, by Donald Trump.”
