( – Former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is not anticipated to endorse Donald Trump for his reelection campaign in the near future, as reported by the Associated Press.

After withdrawing from the Republican presidential primary in March, Haley plans to host a gathering for 100 of her donors next week in Charleston, South Carolina, according to reports from the Associated Press.

The purpose of the meeting is not to support Trump or to direct her donors toward other candidates, but rather to express gratitude to her supporters, as stated in a Wall Street Journal report.

Even though she is no longer in the race, Haley continues to attract notable attention in the ongoing Republican primaries. In the recent Indiana Republican primary, she secured 22% of the vote, amounting to over 128,000 votes.

Additionally, in Pennsylvania’s closed primary last month, where only registered Republicans could vote, Haley impressively garnered nearly 17% of the vote with over 157,000 votes. This performance in Pennsylvania drew significant attention.

Haley also performed well in Arizona, a key swing state, where she earned 18% of the vote despite ending her candidacy two weeks prior to the election. Further, she received 14% of the vote in Florida and 13% in Georgia, indicating strong support in these potential swing states as well.

Following comments from Trump that Haley’s supporters would be “permanently barred from the MAGA camp,” President Joe Biden’s campaign launched advertisements targeting Haley’s voters.

Upon exiting the race, Haley emphasized that it was Trump’s responsibility to win over her supporters, stressing that politics should be about inclusion rather than exclusion. “Our conservative cause badly needs more people,” she remarked.

Recently, Haley announced that she would be joining the Hudson Institute, a conservative think tank focused on foreign policy. She previously served as the United States Ambassador to the United Nations under the Trump administration.
