Nikki Haley Announces Presidential Run

Haley is a veteran of the Trump administration

Nikki Haley, who served as U.N. ambassador and governor of South Carolina, announced Tuesday that she is running for president, becoming the first major rival to officially challenge Donald Trump for the GOP nomination in 2024.

Haley made her announcement in a 3½-minute video released online, in which she declares, "It's time for a new generation of leadership." The video emphasizes Haley's gender and her family's immigrant roots.

A veteran of the Trump administration, Haley begins as an underdog in the GOP race. If successful, she would become the first woman and first Asian American to lead the Republican ticket. She previously made history as the country's first female Asian American governor and the first Indian American to serve in the cabinet.
