GOP candidate Nikki Haley has yet to win. But she's determined to oppose Trump (Part-2).

After finishing second in New Hampshire, Haley's campaign raised $5 million in Texas, Florida, New York, and California, Perez-Cubas claimed. Her campaign raised $11.5 million in January—its highest month ever. Her associated super PAC raised $12 million within the same period. According to federal papers revealed late Tuesday, Haley's team outraised Trump's last month.

The Trump campaign raised $8.8 million in January, while his primary super PAC raised $7.3 million. A second pro-Trump PAC raised $5 million but spent most of it on the former president's legal bills. Haley's only congressional supporter, Rep. Ralph Norman, R-S.C., conceded that she may struggle to win South Carolina, where she resides and served two years as governor, despite her huge cash advantage.

“You want to win them all, but I disagree with those who say it will embarrass her or end her political career. She'll risk it, Norman remarked in an interview. I find her actions brave.” Trump has exhibited rage in recent days at Haley's unwillingness to relinquish the candidacy.

He labeled her “stupid” and “birdbrain” on social media over the weekend as part of a campaign of personal insults. Trump's criticism on Haley's husband, Michael, who is serving a year in Africa with the South Carolina Army National Guard, angered some primary voters earlier in the month.

Haley finally showed her emotions by acknowledging the personal toll on her family. First, we had trouble saying goodbye to him when he left to Afghanistan. He deployed to Africa last summer, making it much tougher, she stated with teary eyes and a crackling voice.

She stated earlier in the speech that she had “no fear of Trump’s retribution.” “I feel no need to kiss the ring,” she replied. “My own political future is irrelevant.” In a document, Trump's campaign chiefs called Haley's campaign “broken down, out of ideas, out of gas, and completely outperformed by every measure, by Donald Trump.”

The former president is also aggressively attempting to take over the Republican National Committee, the GOP's countrywide political machine, which is supposed to stay neutral in presidential primary contests, in order to shift toward a general election showdown against Biden. Trump named his campaign's top advisor Chris LaCivita RNC COO and daughter-in-law Lara Trump co-chair last week.

After Trump wins South Carolina's primary, Chair Ronna McDaniel will likely resign and party leaders will comply with Trump. Haley's staff privately admits it can't halt Trump's takeover. Florida governor Ron DeSantis said Tuesday in a separate South Carolina event that the GOP needed to rally behind Trump. “As far as I'm concerned, the primary's over,” said DeSantis, who dropped out of the presidential race last month after a poor Iowa showing and embraced Trump.

In her interview, Haley advised her party against allowing Trump plunder the RNC's finances for his legal bills while looking at his short-term electoral chances. As Trump navigates 91 felony allegations across four criminal cases, Haley acknowledged that a felony conviction before Election Day would profoundly affect his status.

“He’s going to be in a courtroom all of March, April, May and June,” Haley added. “How do you win a general election when these cases and judgments keep coming?” Biden was asked whether he would rather face Haley or Trump come fall as he left the White House on Tuesday.
