New candidate for the US elections

Nikki Haley, a former ambassador to the United Nations and governor of South Carolina, will begin to announce her candidacy for the presidency, making her the first declared Republican challenger to Donald Trump at a time when other potential candidates have slowed their movements, according to US media.

Hailey could release a video referencing her decision this week, a strategy, as described by several people briefed on the plans, aimed at driving attendance and enthusiasm for a personal ad event in the coming weeks.

Hayley plans to officially announce her candidacy in Charleston on February 15, according to sources briefed on the plans, a date first reported by the Post and Courier in Charleston, South Carolina.

Haley’s decision to enter the race is also due to the more cautious strategy adopted by most of the other potential candidates who decided there was no need to rush their preparations.

Advisers to these Republicans, many of whom spoke on condition of anonymity, said they were wary of becoming an early target for former President Donald Trump.

Some advisers also hoped that Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who has taken initial steps toward running, would face early scrutiny because of his high national polls as scrutiny could work to their advantage.

They added that there was a general feeling in their circles that there was enough time to learn more about how the race was going, the enthusiasm of donors, getting the ballots and building the campaign infrastructure.
