Nikki Haley Announces 2024 Presidential Campaign

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley is entering the 2024 presidential race, becoming the first prominent Republican challenger to former President Donald Trump.

Her campaign released a launch video:

Haley, 51, was elected twice as South Carolina's governor. She resigned in early 2017 after being confirmed as the Trump Administration's Ambassador to the United Nations. 

During her first term, she appointed then Rep. Tim Scott to the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Jim DeMint. In a bit of a twist, Scott may also be a candidate for the GOP nomination. This would likely lead to a split vote in this early primary state where Trump remains popular.

2024 Electoral Map

There are 630 days until the November 5, 2024 presidential election. A few reminders about the interactive Electoral College Map:

  • The default view, until some forecasts are available, is '2020 Competitive', which we have arbitrarily defined as states decided by a margin of 10% or less in 2020. It is not meant to be a projection of what states will be competitive in 2024.
  • You can select a specific Democratic and Republican nominee above the map. Click the party or candidate name above the electoral vote counter and an alphabetized dropdown will appear. The list is not exhaustive; it will be updated as prominent names enter and leave the race.
  • 2020 Census reapportionment means the electoral map is changing for 2024. The default view for the interactive map is the 2024 vote distribution. You can use the buttons above the map to view 2020 or the change between the two years.
