Several Republican senators are considering former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley as a potential challenger to former President Donald Trump in the 2024 Republican presidential primary, as Trump continues to lead in the polls.

Despite Trump’s strong lead, many believe that Haley has shown promise and may have momentum after her performance in the first Republican debate.

“I wouldn’t count out Nikki Haley. She came in as governor [of South Carolina] the year I came in as Speaker of the [North Carolina] House and I have a lot of admiration for the way she led South Carolina,” Sen. Thom Tillis (R-NC) said. (Trending: Olympic Gold Medalist Sentenced For Jan 6)

“She’s acquitted herself really well in the debates and I think has done well out on the stump. Part of running for national office especially in those early states is relatability and I think she’s got a good retail political style. Seems to be winning over some people,” stated Republican Whip John Thune.

Some senators are expressing support for Haley’s potential to challenge Trump, while others are more skeptical and believe that the primary field will eventually narrow down to a two-person race, possibly between Haley and Trump.

“The Republicans aren’t ready to make changes yet in their decision making — they’re getting closer. So I think her timing is probably pretty key,” Mike Rounds said.

“After the Iowa Caucuses, after New Hampshire, I think this will be narrowed down to a two-person race,” Rounds added.

“I think she has momentum.”

“If DeSantis doesn’t perform in Iowa and she does, then it sets her up for New Hampshire and it becomes an interesting contest,” Thillis agreed.

Sen. Mitt Romney (R-UT) said, “She has better prospects than he does because her numbers are going up and his are coming down. Usually, you want to place your bet on someone who is doing better.”

The upcoming Republican debate in Alabama is expected to be significant in shaping the trajectory of the Republican hopefuls.
