Haley set to quit Republican nomination race

Update : 06 Mar 2024, 18:08

Nikki Haley has reportedly ended her long-shot Republican presidential primary bid after losing 14 of the 15 “Super Tuesday” contests to Donald Trump.

The former South Carolina governor, who became Trump’s United Nations ambassador and the first prominent woman of color to seek the Republican nomination for president, is due to deliver remarks near her South Carolina home at 10am ET on Wednesday.

The suspension of her campaign was first reported by the Wall Street Journal, quoting people familiar with her plans.

Haley has endured a long string of losses, which began with Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada and her home state of South Carolina. On Tuesday, when voters in 15 states cast ballots in contests known as Super Tuesday, Haley lost every state apart from Vermont. She had previously only won in Washington DC.
