Nikki Haley visits Mt. Pleasant less than 24 hours before the GOP Primary

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCBD) – After she visited Monks Corner Friday, Haley came directly to Mount Pleasant for her second event.

Haley was introduced by a handful of statewide elected officials, like Ninth Circuit solicitor Scarlet Wilson, State Senator Chip Campsem, and U.S. Representative Ralph Norman.

“You could be anywhere, and you’re here supporting our great candidate and our future president, Nikki Haley,” said Representative Norman.

Haley covered a handful of topics Friday night, like increasing veteran aid, the Biden Administration, and international affairs. She also highlighted her plans, including term limits and increasing border security if elected.

Being in her home state, Haley also connects with those in attendance at these events by reflecting on her time as the Palmetto state’s governor.

“And all that we accomplished, if you think back to when I first became governor, times were tough,” she said. “And now I’m running for president, and times are tough,” said Haley.

News 2 talked with some people at tonight’s event who say it will be challenging for Haley to win in South Carolina, but they want her campaign to continue to see if she can prevail over former president Donald Trump.

“She’s not going to win, and her point is, it’s not over yet; people still need to have discussions and move forward. Donald Trump has a great personal magnetism and charisma, and a lot of people really just have a deep emotional attachment to him, but that’s not what’s best for the party right now,” said attendee Irene Sulaowski.

On Friday night, less than 24 hours before polls opened, Haley called on those in attendance to get to the polls.

“Tomorrow is election day. Everybody needs to go out to vote, and you need to take five people with you,” said Haley.
