The Dallas County Republican Party promotes Nikki Haley, the former United Nations ambassador, as a potential candidate for the 2024 presidential election.
At the Dec. 2 event called Road to 2024, funds will be raised in which each seat could be worth up to $25,000, according to Politico.
“After the release of her book, ‘With All Due Respect,’ Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley is being called the early frontrunner for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination″, according to an email obtained by Politico. “Join Dallas County Republican Party and Park Cities Republican Women in welcoming Nikki Haley to Dallas on December 2.”
Dallas County Republican Party Chairman Rodney Anderson told Politico that the wording of the invitation had not been approved by Haley’s team and that he had apologized to them earlier that day. He added that he is already working with his staff to reformulate the invitation.
Haley, 47, was South Carolina’s first female governor from January 2011 to January 2017. On Nov. 4, 2014, she was re-elected for a second term.
During the 2012 presidential campaign, Republican Mitt Rodney considered her a possible running mate, but she said she would reject any proposal because of her position as governor.
The Haley never spoke openly about whether she has presidential aspirations for 2024, although some have accused her of campaigning to replace Vice President Mike Pence as President Donald Trump’s running mate in 2020.
President Trump dismissed that rumor during a Friday morning interview at “Fox & Friends.” “She has become a strong advocate for the president and has been very critical of the impeachment inquiry,” he said.
In her book “With All Due Respect” about the time she worked in President Trump’s White House, Nikki Haley said that she was recruited by then White House Secretary General John Kelly and then Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to subvert the president’s wishes.
