The Horse Race: Haley Camp Looks Past South Carolina to Open Super Tuesday Primaries as Momentum Wanes
In the monthslong slog leading up to Iowa and New Hampshire, Nikki Haley's campaign advisers urged reporters to keep in mind the former U.N. ambassador's so-called secret weapon in the GOP primary: upward momentum.
Two presidential nominating losses later, that theory of the case is on shaky ground. Haley endured another public-relations nightmare Tuesday evening when Nevada Republicans chose the "none of these candidates" option over Haley in the state's GOP primary, where Trump did not appear on the ballot and no delegates were awarded. (The former president is expected to sail to victory in Thursday's state-GOP-run caucus, where delegates are up for grabs.)
For their part, Haley's advisers are downplaying the Nevada results.
"We have not spent a dime nor an ounce of energy on Nevada," Haley campaign manager Betsy Ankney said during an expectation-setting press call Monday morning. "We made the decision early on that we were not going to pay $55,000 to a Trump entity to participate in a process that was rigged for Trump."
As Haley barrels toward her home state of South Carolina, where she served as governor from 2011 to 2017 and where she continues to trail Trump by double digits in most polls, Ankney maintains that her candidate will "continue to fight as long as we have the momentum and resources to do so." It was that momentum, which received significant press attention in the weeks leading up to Iowa, that allowed Haley to win key donor support away from Ron DeSantis as his numbers began to flag.
But now, as that pre-Iowa surge grows stale, Haley's camp is tempering expectations in South Carolina as it continues to set its sights on a number of upcoming open or semi-open primaries on Super Tuesday. In an open primary, voters do not have to formally register with a political party ahead of Election Day in order to vote in that party's primary. In a semi-open primary, voters who are not affiliated with a political party can choose which party's primary they would like to participate in.
Of 874 delegates up for grabs on March 5, nearly two-thirds are in states with open or semi-open primaries, including Texas, Maine, and Virginia. The campaign is eyeing several states that have a large contingent of college-educated voters, suburban voters, and independents, who tend to support Haley over Trump. Those states include Massachusetts, Minnesota, North Carolina . . .
A left-wing writer and racial-justice activist who has claimed that American society was "instituted by racist ideas and maintained by racist policies" published a black history book for kids earlier this year that appears to be filled with content plagiarized from other sources, according to a review of the book by National Review . Confronted with the apparent plagiarism, the book’s publisher said it would be pulled from circulation pending an investigation. Rann Miller, a New Jersey-based activist and educator, published Resistance Stories from Black History for Kids in March. According to the book, it is designed to be a "place of entry" into the history of the African people so readers will be "empowered to fight" injustices in the world. Miller, a former teacher who has both a bachelor’s and a master’s degree from Rutgers University, also writes opinion pieces for the Philadelphia Inquirer , the Progressive Magazine, and education websites
