RNC Chair Urges Haley To Drop Out Of Race

Following former President Donald Trump’s decisive win in the New Hampshire GOP primary, Republican National Committee Chairperson Ronna McDaniel called for former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley to drop out of the race.

“Looking at the math and the path going forward and I don’t see it for Nikki Haley,” McDaniel said during an interview with Fox News.

​​“I think she’s run a great campaign, but I do think there is a message that’s coming out from the voters, which is very clear. We need to unite around our eventual nominee, which is going to be Donald Trump, and we need to make sure we beat Joe Biden,” McDaniel continued.

Trump won the New Hampshire primary with 54.4% of the vote compared to Haley’s 43.3%, a resounding win for the former president.

In her concession speech, Haley assured her supporters that the race was far from over and even challenged Trump to a debate, something the former president has not done since the campaign started.

“I want to congratulate Donald Trump on his victory tonight. He earned it. Trump claims he’d do better than me in one of those [mental] tests … If he thinks that, then he should have no problem standing on a debate stage with me,” Haley said after Trump was declared the winner in New Hampshire.

Trump responded on his Truth social media platform: “Could somebody please explain to Nikki Haley that she lost – and lost really badly. She also lost Iowa, BIG, last week. They were, as certain Non-Fake Media says, ‘CRUSHING DEFEATS.'”

Former GOP candidate Vivek Ramaswamy also urged Haley to drop out of the race and throw her support behind Trump after blasting her candidacy by saying it represents the “ugly underbelly of American politics, where the mega-donors are trying to do one thing when we the people say another.”

South Carolina is the spot of the next GOP primary and it is also the state where Haley used to serve as Governor. Polls show Haley trailing Trump by as many as 40 points in her home state, a loss that would be difficult for her to overcome.

“We’ll head out to South Carolina where I think we’re going to win easily. I think we’re 50 points up … on a person that was governor, that tells you something,” Trump said after being declared the winner in New Hampshire.
