Pressure Mount On Presidential Candidate To Drop Out

Daily Report January 25,2024

Republicans are putting pressure on GOP presidential candidate Nikki Haley to drop out of the 2024 presidential race after former president Donald Trump won the New Hampshire Primary on Tuesday Night.

Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna McDaniel told Fox News that she doesn’t see how Haley, former South Carolina governor, can defeat Trump.

“Looking at the math and the path going forward and I don’t see it for Nicki Haley. I think she ran a great campaign. The message from the voters is clear. We need to unite around our eventual nominee which is going to be Donald Trump. We need to be sure we beat Joe Biden. It’s 10 months away until the November election. We can’t wait any longer to put our foot on the gas to beat the worst president who kept our borders opened and allowed fentanyl to pour through and allowed rampant inflation… If we do not unite and don’t come together to beat him we won’t be successful in 10 months. The Senate and House and White House are at stake. I hope she reflects. I think Donald Trump will be the nominee.”

Sen. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) called on Haley, who served as Trump’s United Nations ambassador, to drop out of the race so the Republican party can unite behind the former president.

“If the @GOP wants to defeat Joe Biden this November, @NikkiHaley must get out of the race. The party must unify and support @realDonaldTrump,” Blackburn wrote in an X post.

Blackburn, who was one of the first prominent Republicans to endorse Trump, had previously made the same request of Haley after the former president won the Iowa caucus in a record-breaking fashion. The lawmaker, rumored to be a potential Trump running mate, urged other contestants to get out of the race so the party could get behind the former president.

“It is time for the party to unify,” Blackburn said. “People ought to get out [of the race]. The party needs to unify. We need to move on and focus on Donald Trump beating Joe Biden and Donald Trump being the 47th president of the United States. It is time for us to put our energy into making certain that he wins and that the candidates that he is endorsing are going to win.”
