She's a smart and decisive defender of individual rights and economic freedom. I see Nikki Haley - former South Carolina governor and Ambassador to the United Nations - as a formidable presidential candidate for the Republicans in 2024. Real Clear Politics
is reporting on a move that signals she could be lining up a team.
- As RealClearPolitics first reported, Tim Chapman, the executive director of Heritage Action, will soon join the team of Nikki Haley, the former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and a possible contender for the presidency post-Trump.
- Chapman will serve as executive director of Stand for America, Haley's conservative policy group. Details remain unknown, as Heritage, Heritage Action, and Stand for America did not return requests for comment.
Nationally, Haley is best know for standing up to tyrants
during her time as U.N. ambassador, but here in North Carolina, many of us remember her friendly, yet competitive, relationship with former Gov. Pat McCrory. Stay tuned. I bet she's running.
