Nikki Haley announced that she would continue her Presidential campaign to the next contest in South Carolina.
South Carolina also happens to be Haley’s home state.
And a key Nikki Haley ally blindsided Laura Ingraham with this confession about her campaign.
Frank Laukien is one of the billionaires propping up Haley’s doomed campaign.
After Trump scored historic victories in Iowa and New Hampshire, conservatives are wondering why Haley decided to prolong the inevitable and take this race to the February 24 South Carolina Primary.
Haley’s admitted strategy is to turn out Democrats in open Primary states, which is a dead-end pathway in a GOP nominating contest.
Laura Ingraham invited Laukien on her Fox News show to help explain why Haley is running this suicide mission.
Ingraham noted that at this point, all Haley’s presence in the race does is benefit Democrats by preventing Donald Trump from pivoting to the General Election.
“All you guys are doing now is helping Biden,” Ingraham stated.
Laukien echoed Haley’s ridiculous claim that the nominating fight was just getting started.
“I think it’s the American people who get to have a say … We’re very clear. We think the candidate for the future is Nikki Haley and we’re gonna support her very strongly. I think she will pull in as she gets better known. I think she will pull in a lot of voters,” Laukien declared.
Laukien then claimed that there was a “very good chance” Haley would win the GOP nomination.
“She is the underdog, but she just advanced to the conference championship game,” Laukien added. “The Super Bowl is in November. You all want to fight the Super Bowl right now. She’s advanced, she’s among the last two. I think as they take a closer look at her and look at Trump, who in many ways, in my opinion, is a flawed candidate. I think she will get a tremendous further boost.”
Ingraham then asked if Laukien thought Haley would win her home state of South Carolina.
Laukien’s answer left Ingraham flabbergasted when he claimed that there was a “very good chance” Haley would win the GOP nomination.
“I don’t know, but we’re focusing on South Carolina and Super Tuesday. I think she has a chance to advance further and right now she’s the underdog, but I think it would be absolutely the wrong time to give up,” Laukien replied. “I think we have a very good chance to do what this country wants, namely 70% don’t want a Trump-Biden rematch.”
Ingraham responded by pointing to the scoreboard.
“Then they should have turned out to vote for Nikki in Iowa and New Hampshire,” Ingraham shot back.
The problem with Haley’s campaign continues to be that it can’t point to one state she can win.
That means the contest is over, and conservatives like Ingraham think it’s time to unite behind Donald Trump.
