GOP candidate Nikki Haley has yet to win. But she's determined to oppose Trump (Part-1).

Greenville, SC — No Nikki Haley wins are coming. Those close to the former UN ambassador, the last major Republican contender blocking Donald Trump's 2024 presidential candidacy, are secretly prepared for a resounding loss in her home state's primary election in South Carolina on Saturday. They cannot identify a state where she will defeat Trump in the next weeks.

In an impassioned speech on Tuesday, Haley said, “I refuse to quit.” She pledged in an interview to keep fighting Trump at least until Super Tuesday's more than a dozen elections on March 5, even if she loses heavily in her home state Saturday.

Twenty states vote ten days after South Carolina. This isn't Russia. We don't want someone to win 99% of the vote, Haley told AP. Why the hurry? Why is everyone so worried about me leaving this race?

Some Republicans are encouraging Haley to stay in the campaign even if she loses, possibly until the Republican National Convention in July if the 77-year-old former president, perhaps the most volatile major party front-runner in U.S. history, becomes a felon or gets into another scandal.

Haley defied Trump's “Make America Great Again” movement on Tuesday by comparing him to Democratic President Joe Biden, calling both too elderly, divided, and unpopular to be voters' sole alternatives in fall. She also refused to say in which primary state she could defeat Trump. Instead of asking me what states I'll win, why don't we ask how he'll win a general election after a year in court?

Haley is the first Republican to lose the first two primaries by an average of 21 points yet win the presidential nomination. She is an underdog in her home state on Saturday and in the 16 Super Tuesday races to follow, according to polls. Every Republican attempt to slow Trump's momentum since his 2015 presidential run has failed.

Haley's campaign is spending over $500,000 on a new television advertising campaign that will begin Wednesday in Michigan before the Feb. 27 primary, according to spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas. The AP also obtained Haley's post-South Carolina travel plan, which includes 11 trips in seven days — Michigan, Minnesota, Colorado, Utah, Virginia, Washington, D.C., North Carolina, and Massachusetts. At least 10 high-dollar private fundraising events are scheduled.

Despite her poor election showing, Haley's large base of big- and small-dollar contributors is contributing at record levels. Republican concerns about Trump's ability to win over independents and moderate voters in the general election and his tumultuous leadership if he returns to the White House linger.

“I’m going to support her up to the convention,” said Republican contributor Eric Levine, who co-hosted a Haley event in New York last month. "We won't fold our tents and pray at Trump's altar." “If and when he stumbles,” Levine said, “who knows what happens.” She should stick in and get delegates.
