Trump Beats Nikki Haley on Her Home Turf of South Carolina, Winning 60% of GOP Primary Votes

HeadlineFeb 26, 2024

Donald Trump has moved a step closer to securing the Republican presidential nomination after defeating Nikki Haley in South Carolina’s primary. Trump won about 60% of the vote. Haley, who had served as South Carolina’s governor, received just over 39%. She spoke to supporters on Saturday.

Nikki Haley: “I said earlier this week that no matter what happens in South Carolina, I would continue to run for president. I’m a woman of my word.”

In another setback for Haley, a key political network funded by billionaire Charles Koch announced it would end its financial support for her candidacy.
