Nikki Haley Says 'I Don't Run For Second' When Asked About VP Opportunity

 August 19, 2023

Republican presidential hopeful Nikki Haley was recently asked if she was running for president not to win the presidency, but to get on Donald Trump's radar as a potential running mate.

She had a VERY clear answer.

According to Haley, she does NOT "run for second."

"I think everybody that says, ‘She’s doing this to be vice president,’ needs to understand I don’t run for second," the former governor of South Carolina said, adding:

That’s something that I hear all the time, and I’ll tell you that, look, we have a country to save, and I don’t trust anybody else to do it.

If that's really Haley's goal, she certainly has some work to do.

In most of America's most recent polls, Haley brought in a respectable 7% support, but that was still less than half of the support that Trump, DeSantis, Ramaswamy, and Pence have garnered.

She's behind Trump by a full fifty points.

Catching him is going to be quite the task, but that's exactly what Haley intends to do.
