As part of her two-year drive to improve the chances of the GOP in 2022 and lay the groundwork for a 2024 presidential run, Nikki Haley is currently campaigning for dozens of Republican candidates around the nation.
Haley will visit Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Texas before the election. She is campaigning for Republicans running for the House, Senate, and state governorships on both sides of the Donald Trump divide, including Herschel Walker and Dr. Mehmet Oz, the former president’s selections for the Senate in Georgia and Pennsylvania, respectively; Republicans on his naughty list, like Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp; and occasional Trump critic Gov. Chris Sununu of New Hampshire.
As more appearances for more candidates in more states are anticipated to be added to Haley’s fall schedule in the coming days, she will also conduct some campaigning in her home state of South Carolina. Haley will end the midterm election year having collected more than $5 million for more than 50 Republican candidates and organizations through her political action committee Stand for America, for whom she headlined more than 50 events around the country.
In a statement sent to the Washington Examiner, Haley declared, “America is worth fighting for, which is why we’re crisscrossing the country campaigning for conservatives up and down the ballot.” “We’re doing our share to create the kind of fighters that the world needs as leaders.”
Haley, a 50-year-old former governor of South Carolina, was chosen to join Trump’s cabinet as the country’s ambassador to the UN in the middle of her second term.
JD Vance’s rescue mission in the Ohio Senate race is being mounted by MCCONNELL’S Super PAC.
She and the other members of her political staff are clear that the potential 2024 candidate’s sole objective in the work she has done over the past 20 months has been to aid Republicans in gaining control of Congress in November and expand the number of GOP governors. But Haley’s aspirations for the White House are clear, as seen by the extensive political operation she has established since departing the Trump administration in January 2019.
Haley participates in overt political activity through the Stand for America PAC, and she also promotes conservative ideals through the political nonprofit Stand for America, a 501(c)4. Haley is utilizing both platforms to develop grassroots political support and compile a profitable digital file of grassroots contributors who make modest online contributions, who are becoming an increasingly important source of funding for successful presidential campaigns.
The size of Stand for America, the 501(c)4’s donor list and the amount it has raised this cycle were not made public by Haley’s campaign. Although the organization sends out a daily newsletter to 200,000 people, a Haley adviser claimed that the group reaches roughly 1 million people weekly through its social media platforms. The adviser estimated that the 600 newsletters sent over the course of the past two years reached a total of 860,000 people.
The Stand for America PAC, however, reported raising just under $13 million for the 2022 cycle through June 30 and claimed having $3.2 million in cash on hand. This PAC is subject to federal fundraising disclosure laws.
This year, Stand for America has concentrated its efforts on supporting the 2022 candidates. As a result, they have built a base of supporters and raised millions of dollars for in-cycle candidates, according to a senior GOP digital strategist who monitors prominent Republicans and their online fundraising efforts.
Haley, who was a harsh critic of Trump throughout the 2016 campaign, became close with the previous president after serving in his Cabinet. Their relationship was admirable: Haley was able to maintain Trump’s favor while occasionally opposing him in public and by refraining from acting in the obsequious subservience so typical of the other people in the 45th president’s inner circle.
However, their friendship suffered following the 2020 election as a result of Trump’s unsubstantiated allegations that the election was rigged and Joe Biden was the true winner.
Trump retaliated after Haley’s criticism, but she has since worked hard to mend the breach, even going so far as to declare that she won’t run for president in 2024 if Trump launches a third bid. Although she still encounters skepticism from grassroots Republicans over her dispute with Trump, which could present issues should she run for president, the movement has made some progress.

However, since early 2021, immediately following her spat with Trump, Haley has been a significant attraction on the fundraising circuit, with audiences responding well to the former ambassador personally. Haley is accumulating political chits she can cash in later — possibly in 2024 — by raising money for so many Republican candidates and putting Stand for America PAC to work for their 2022 campaigns. Events she headlined frequently fill to capacity.
In reference to Romney, the 2012 GOP presidential nominee who is now a senator from Utah, a Republican strategist said, “Upside – Haley might bring back the suburban voters who liked Mitt Romney but rolled their eyes, or worse, at Trump.” She wouldn’t influence low-propensity voters who favor Trump over all other candidates and are prepared to abstain from voting.
