With Trump Projected to Sweep Super Tuesday, Haley May Be Facing Her Last Stand – EVOL

Haley represents about 20 percent of Republicans who want a different direction for the Republican Party.

WASHINGTON—Trailing her Republican rival by hundreds of delegates, former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley has ignored calls for her to drop out and kept fighting on.

And on Super Tuesday, when more than a third of the GOP delegates will be awarded as 15 states—the Northeast, the South, the Midwest, Pacific Coast, and Alaska—go to the polls, she’s projected to lose most, if not all of them, to former President Donald Trump.

Ms. Haley, for her part, has only pledged to stay on until Super Tuesday, prompting questions about when she will call it quits.

At a Friday rally in Washington, she explained her motive for staying in the race.

“This is not about my political future, or I would have been out a long time ago. The reason I’m doing this is for my kids, your kids, and the younger generation.”

Ms. Haley has repeatedly dodged the question about when she would withdraw her presidential bid, instead often saying that she was focusing on the next primary and that she had a “country to save.”
