Nikki Haley Continues Presidential Campaign Despite Lagging in South Carolina Primary Polls

Nikki Haley, former Governor of South Carolina and Republican presidential candidate, has insisted that she will continue her campaign despite lagging significantly behind Donald Trump in the South Carolina primary polls. Despite speculation about a possible concession, Haley’s team outlined post-South Carolina plans, including spending over $500,000 on a new TV ad in Michigan and a travel schedule that includes nine states and numerous high-dollar fundraisers. Analysts believe that while her chances of winning the nomination are slim, her continued fundraising success allows her to maintain a presence in the race and potentially position herself as an alternative to Trump.
