Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley, who is considered a potential contender for the 2023 Republican presidential nomination, recently made an important announcement.
Nikki Haley has revealed that she is starting a new political action committee, the Stand for America PAC. Her new group is a political version of her nonprofit organization of the same name, and is currently focused on the 2022 midterms.
The group will “recruit, advise, train and financially support strong conservatives to run in key House and Senate races to take back control of both chambers.”
The Stand for America PAC’s online donation page rails against Democrats like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, Senator Chuck Schumer, and Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
Its website says: “Nikki Haley campaigned for numerous great conservative candidates for the U.S. Senate and House. Now, many of them are in Congress, leading the effort against a new brand of liberalism that has taken over the Democrat Party.”
The left and the mainstream media are trying to make a big deal out of the fact that the website doesn’t mention President Trump. Axios reported: “Former UN Ambassador Nikki Haley is starting a new political action committee and, so far, conspicuously avoiding any mention of President Trump… Neither the website nor the donation page mention Trump, Haley’s former boss, or even feature a photo with him.”
Chaney Denton, a spokesperson for Haley, hit back at Axios for this. “There’s nothing to read into that. Amb. Haley frequently and proudly mentions her work alongside President Trump in speeches and writings. The purpose of SFA PAC is to support Republicans in the 2022 midterm elections,” Denton said.
Haley’s recent statements show that the assumption that she is avoiding mentioning Trump is incorrect.
“I am one who believes our country made some truly extraordinary gains in the last four years. President Trump and Republicans deserve great credit for that. We should not shy away from our accomplishments,” she said.
Nikki Haley‘s decision to start the Stand for America PAC at this time is important. As the left is poised to take over both chambers of Congress, and the White House, defending American values is going to be paramount.
“It’s up to us to protect America’s founding principles—to stand for freedom, opportunity, the rule of law, religious liberty, free speech, the sanctity of life, and a strong national defense. It’s up to us to support candidates with the courage to lead this mission,” the website states.
