Haley Calls Nevada Race a “Scam” Rigged In Trump’s Favor, Vows To Stay In The Race 

Nikki Haley discussed her Nevada defeat and accused the former president and likely GOP nominee of pulling a “scam” and rigging the state primary.

Haley received 31 percent of the votes in Nevada, compared to 63 percent who voted “none of these candidates,” or roughly  44,000 people. Haley appeared on Fox News, where she talked about focusing on South Carolina, Michigan, and Super Tuesday. Still, she threw in some serious accusations against Trump.

“Nevada — it’s such a scam. They were supposed to have a primary. Trump rigged it so the GOP chairman, who’s been indicted, would go and create a caucus,” Haley said. The former South Carolina governor added, “Trump had it rigged from the very beginning.”

Haley said her focus was on South Carolina, so the Fox host looked at the numbers, which showed Trump has 52 percent compared to her 21.8. The host asked, “If you indeed lose by 30 points, are you done?” Haley explained, “We started with 14 candidates. I have outdone and defeated a dozen of them. I have one left. We had two percent in Iowa. We got to 20%. We got to 43% in New Hampshire. We moved 25 points in the last three weeks in New Hampshire.” 

Not backing down

Haley continued, “We are going to go as hard as we can and make sure that we touch every spot of South Carolina and every person. They know that I was a good governor. Now we are showing them I can be a good president.”

Olivia Perez-Cubas, a spokesperson for Haley, argued that the process favored Trump and said, “Even Donald Trump knows that when you play penny slots, the house wins. We didn’t bother to play a game rigged for Trump.” Haley’s campaign manager, Betsy Ankney, told reporters, “We have not spent a dime nor an ounce of energy on Nevada.”

During a California fundraising event on February 7, Haley, the former UN ambassador, said, “Just know, I’m not going anywhere,” adding, “I’m in this for the long haul. And this is going to be messy. And this is going to hurt, and it’s going to leave some bruises.”

Not stopping

Haley signaled on Fox, “We’re not stopping” and “We’re going to work hard.” She also shared how she can beat Biden, while Trump can’t, “You look at the general election polls. Trump is down in every one of those polls. Down 7 (points), down 9. On his best day, it’s a margin of error. We had a Marquette poll come out recently in Wisconsin, I defeated Biden by 15 points. Wall Street Journal, I defeat Biden by 17 points.”

Losing since 2018

Haley also reminded voters that the Republicans have been losing since 2018. Haley said that Trump can’t win a general election and added, “He lost his case on immunity, and he’s got a year’s worth of court cases yet.” Then she talked about the House GOP and the RNC, all while blaming Trump.

Haley then discussed the failed border deal and the failed impeachment of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. She first focused on the House GOP: “The Republicans couldn’t get a border situation done. They couldn’t impeach Secretary [Alejandro] Mayorkas. They couldn’t pass a pro-Israel bill.”

Haley continued by saying that the RNC is “imploding,” adding that all these events have “Trump’s fingerprints on it.” She doubled down on the claims, “Everything he touches is chaos, and we continue to lose. How many more times do we have to lose before we realize that is the problem?”

Haley believes that a woman will lead the US, “It will either be me, or it will be Kamala Harris.” While she said she voted twice for Trump, Haley added that “chaos follows him.”

The former South Carolina Governor does not believe the US could survive “four more years of chaos.” Still, a USA TODAY/Suffolk University poll found that Trump leads Haley 55% to 38% among Massachusetts voters.
