Despite the humiliation of losing this week's Nevada primary to the "none of these candidates," Nikki Haley is continuing to pursue the GOP candidacy. Haley did not address the Nevada outcome when she told supporters she intended to continue fighting at a campaign rally in California, according to Reuters. In the mostly symbolic battle on Tuesday, Haley managed to get just 31% of the vote, which is less than half of the 63% that went to "none of these candidates." The campaign of the former president Trump was more focused on Thursday's caucuses than the primary. With only one significant contender participating in the caucuses, Trump is the favorite to win all 26 delegates.

Haley said, "I am not going anywhere." "I want to stick with this through. It is going to get nasty with this. This is likely to cause pain and result in some bruises." Haley did not run for office in Nevada. "Even Donald Trump is aware that the house always wins while playing penny slots. According to the BBC, campaign spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas said, "We are full speed ahead in South Carolina and beyond. We did not bother to play a game rigged for Trump." Haley's native state of South Carolina will have its GOP primary on February 24.

A spokesperson for the Trump campaign, Steven Cheung, criticized Haley's setback, describing it as a "humiliating, shameful, and completely crushing defeat," according to the BBC. In a post on Truth Social, Trump remarked, "A tough night for Nikki Haley." "Observe, she will be claiming Victory shortly!" Because only votes for officially designated candidates count toward the outcome, Haley technically won the Tuesday primary, according to the Nevada secretary of state's office, as reported by Reuters.
