Rubio Suggests Donors Are Throwing Money Away on Nikki Haley

( – According to Senator Marco Rubio, Nikki Haley is wasting Republican Party donor money by continuing her 2024 presidential campaign. This claim comes after Haley has lost to former President Donald Trump in both the Iowa caucus and the New Hampshire primary. Haley remains in the race as Trump’s only challenger after other contenders dropped out.

Trump will ultimately win the Republican Party nomination, Rubio said on January 23 in a statement to social media platform X. However, it remains unclear how much donor money will be “wasted” by Haley in the coming weeks by continuing her campaign, Rubio added.

On January 14, Rubio endorsed Trump, citing the former president’s ability to take extraordinary actions to fix problems caused by the Biden administration. Rubio also praised Trump for not caving to special interests or letting bureaucrats stymie congressional efforts. Rubio backed Trump despite having run against him in the 2016 election.

Rubio’s statement on wasting donor money comes following back-to-back Haley losses in the Iowa caucus and New Hampshire primary. Trump won a majority of votes in both nominating contests. Nevertheless, Haley vowed to remain in the race after her defeat in New Hampshire, calling the race “far from over.”

Haley will seek to halt Trump’s momentum in upcoming nominating contests, such as the Nevada caucus on February 8 and the South Carolina primary on February 24. Haley served as governor of South Carolina, although some Republican officials in the state, including Senator Tim Scott and Congresswoman Nancy Mace, have backed Trump instead.

Trump has vowed to permanently ban Haley’s campaign donors from his circle moving forward. Trump said that he would no longer accept help from losing candidates’ donors despite such offers being “standard” in the political world.

Even though Haley’s donors may be wasting their money, as alleged by Rubio, Trump will not allow them to put their resources behind his own campaign if she drops out. However, given Trump’s success on the campaign trail so far, it appears as though he does not need the extra support.
