You should know this about me. I don’t put up with bullies. And when you kick back, it hurts them more if you’re wearing heels. I’m Nikki Haley, and I’m running for president.

Nikki Haley, former Republican governor of South Carolina and United Nations ambassador during the Trump Administration, announcing her presidential campaign.

Why It Matters: Until Haley's video announcement on Tuesday, former President Donald Trump was the only major GOP candidate who had officially announced their presidential bid. Haley’s announcement is expected to "open the flood gates in the 2024 GOP nomination race.”
