Nikki Haley running for president in 2024? 'If there's a place for me'

·1 min read

On a visit Thursday to Iowa, the home of what's been the nation's first caucuses for presidential elections, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley said she'll run for president in 2024 "if there's a place for me."

A spokesperson for Haley reached Friday morning said the former governor had nothing more to add at the time.

Fellow South Carolina Republican Tim Scott, the senator from North Charleston, and former Vice President Mike Pence have also been among potential presidential candidates to visit Iowa recently, the Des Moines Register reports.

One question remaining is whether or not former President Donald Trump will run.

Haley served as ambassador to the United Nations under Trump from January 2017 to January 2019. They backed different candidates in the most recent primary for South Carolina's 1st Congressional District, with Haley supporting incumbent winner Nancy Mace while Trump supported challenger Katie Arrington.

Upon Haley's U.N. resignation in 2019, she said she would not run for president in the 2020 election.

Haley was South Carolina's first female governor from 2011 to 2017.

She was selected to Clemson University's board of trustees in 2021, and she founded the advocacy group Stand for America to promote public policies related to the economy, culture and national security.

Haley served for three terms in the state House of Representatives from 2005 to 2011 after winning the District 87 seat over Larry Koon, who was the state's longest-serving legislator at the time.

Upon the announcement of resignation as U.N. ambassador, Trump, Pence, U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and former Speaker of the House Paul Ryan were among those who praised her service.
