Nikki Haley rejects idea of third-party presidential bid

Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, who was recently soundly defeated by former President Donald Trump in her home state's GOP presidential primary, is still is not dropping out and says she has zero interest in a third-party White House bid.

"I am a Republican. I am not running as any other party or independent," Haley told Grady Trimble of the Fox Business Network. When asked whether she would ever run third-party, Haley rejected the idea, saying that she has "no interest in a third-party candidacy."

The Associated Press has previously reported that Haley swatted away the idea of running in connection with the "No Labels" group.

"I have not had one conversation with No Labels. They have sent signals to me that they want to talk. I have told them I am not interested in talking," she said, according to the AP. "I'm running as a Republican. That's my focus is to stay in this as a Republican nominee and to win as a Republican."

While Haley, who served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations during a portion of former President Donald Trump's White House tenure, is persisting in her presidential bid, Trump appears to be poised to easily win the 2024 GOP presidential nod.

Haley has so far failed to beat Trump in any of the GOP presidential nominating contests, a trend which is likely to continue going forward.
