Nikki Haley applies for Secret Service protection

Feb 6

Share

Republican presidential candidate Nikki Haley has requested Secret Service protection. Haley’s campaign did not provide any specific threats that prompted the request. Still, the former ambassador to the United Nations has been the target of at least two “swatting” incidents. According to a Reuters report, one incident on Dec. 30, 2023, and one on Jan. 1, 2024 where callers filed false reports looking to generate a significant response by law enforcement.

“Part of running for public life is that you’re going to deal with the threats that are there. That’s not going to deter me. Does it mean we have to put a few more bodies around us? Yes, that’s fine,” Haley said while at a campaign stop in South Carolina.

There have also been protesters at her recent campaign events opposing her support for Ukraine and Israel. Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Haley confirmed the application for protection with the Department of Homeland Security, saying, “We’ve had multiple issues.” Haley added, “It’s not going to stop me from doing what I need to do.”

Haley remains the last remaining opponent to former President Donald Trump for the 2024 GOP nomination. Despite losing to Trump in the Iowa caucuses and New Hampshire’s first-in-the-nation primary, Haley says she will continue her campaign and not drop out of the 2024 presidential race.

Nevada holds its Republican and Democratic primary elections on Tuesday, Feb. 6. The Nevada Republican Party will host a caucus on Thursday, Feb. 8.
