Ron DeSantis revealed one truth about the South Carolina Primary that Nikki Haley refuses to accept

Feb 22, 2024

The South Carolina GOP Presidential Primary will take place on Saturday.

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis traveled to the Palmetto State on Tuesday where he delivered remarks to the South Carolina State House Senate Chamber.

And Ron DeSantis just revealed one truth about the South Carolina Primary that Nikki Haley refuses to accept.

Republican voters are set to head to the polls on Saturday to choose between Donald Trump and Nikki Haley for the GOP Presidential Primary race.

Nikki Haley is from South Carolina and previously served as the Governor from 2011 to 2017.

But she is not popular with voters in her home state of South Carolina.

According to the Real Clear Politics polling average, Donald Trump is leading Haley by 25.3 points in South Carolina with just a few days remaining until the Primary.

Trump is leading by more than 30 points in some polls.

However, Nikki Haley refuses to drop out of the race.

On Tuesday, Haley held a press conference where most pundits expected her to announce that she was dropping out of the Presidential race.

But Haley did the opposite.

“Some of you, perhaps a few of you in the media, came here today to see if I’m dropping out of the race,” Haley said as she began her remarks. “Well, I’m not,” she continued. “Far from it, and I’m here to tell you why I’m running for president: Because we have a country to save.” 

“I feel no need to kiss the ring,” she said. “I have no fear of Trump’s retribution.”

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis was in South Carolina on Tuesday to speak to the state legislature about adopting term limits for members of Congress.

Even though he is no longer running for President, DeSantis offered a prediction on the upcoming South Carolina Primary.

When speaking with reporters after his talk, DeSantis made it clear that Nikki Haley is wasting everyone’s time by staying in the race.

“If you have a path, you have every right to be running,” DeSantis said. “But if the path isn’t there, then I think: At what point is the purpose of this?” he continued. “And I think that would actually just be how everyone looks at it.”

He also ripped Haley for depending on Democrats for votes in a GOP Primary.

“What I didn’t understand about Nikki — and I still don’t understand it today — is we have a voter base in the Republican Party,” he said. “And I think if you look at the Iowa results, it’s a good example, eighty-five percent of the registered Republicans voted for either Trump or me, effectively, so that’s just a big conservative base, right?” he continued, before adding “to try to appeal to people who aren’t a part of that base for a primary — I just didn’t understand that.”

As for the South Carolina Primary, DeSantis predicted that it is Donald Trump’s for the taking.

“There’s no question that South Carolina is going to be a big victory for Donald Trump because he appeals to core Republicans in a way that Nikki Haley just does not or is not trying to,” DeSantis concluded.

Like Vivek Ramaswamy, Ron DeSantis saw Trump’s 30-point victory in Iowa as a clear sign that he was the top choice for GOP voters.

But Nikki Haley refuses to accept this fact and will face a humiliating defeat in her home state.
