Kellyanne Conway dropped the hammer on Nikki Haley with this rude awakening
Kellyanne Conway is one of the many conservatives eager to see the GOP nominating contest come to a close.
Donald Trump made history by easily winning Iowa and New Hampshire.
And Kellyanne Conway dropped the hammer on Nikki Haley with this rude awakening.
Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s Presidential campaign is funded and staffed by Democrats.
That doesn’t come as a total shock since Haley campaigned as the most left-wing Republican in the field.
Haley said she opposed legislation to ban transgender surgeries for minor children, supported President Joe Biden’s war in Ukraine, supported a 23 percent national sales tax, and supported businesses importing unlimited numbers of immigrants into America.
Unsurprisingly, this platform held little appeal to actual Republicans.
Former President Donald Trump routed her in the New Hampshire primary by 11 points.
Trump won registered Republicans by 49 points, but a flood of Democrats registering as independents allowed Haley to keep the margin somewhat more respectable.
Even knowing she had virtually no support among Republican voters, Haley announced in her speech following the networks calling the race for Trump that this was just the start of her campaign.
“Well, I have news for all of them. New Hampshire is first in the nation. It is not the last in the nation. This race is far from over!” Haley declared.
“There are dozens of states left to go. And the next one is my sweet state of South Carolina. At one point in this campaign, there were 14 of us running, and we were at 2 percent in the polls. Well, I’m a fighter. And I’m scrappy. And now we’re the last ones standing next to Donald Trump,” Haley added.
Over on Fox News, Kellyanne Conway didn’t care for Haley’s stubbornness.
Calling Haley an “election denier” Conway said it was time for her to recognize that Republican voters have made their preference known and they want Donald Trump as the party’s nominee.
“I don’t really care for that,” Conway stated. “For [Trump] to sweep those first three states, it’s pretty decisive. This is a democracy, a constitutional republic. We must respect the will of the people, and Nikki Haley can’t become an election denier. She’s been rejected. She can say tonight she came in second, or you can say she came in last.”
The road ahead is only getting rockier for Haley.
There isn’t a poll of a remaining state where Trump leads her by less than 30 points.
Haley can’t come out and say it, but the reason she is trudging on is to come in second and pick up a chunk of delegates in the hopes Special Counsel Jack Smith and President Joe Biden throw Trump in jail and the party tries to replace him at the convention.
